Orders of Protection and Divorce
Parties to a marriage, whether living together or separated, can request emergency relief in a form of an Order of Protection.
If a divorce case is not yet pending, the Order of Protection proceeding would stand on its own meaning that it would not be part of any underlying divorce proceeding.
If an Emergency Petition for an Order of Protection is filed, but order not yet entered, and there is a subsequent dissolution of marriage case filed, usually the presiding Judge in the underlying divorce case takes over with respect to the Petition for Emergency Order of Protection proceeding, so that there would not be two (2) different Judges for two (2) different proceedings within the same Court.
If there is already a dissolution of marriage proceeding pending, and facts and circumstances arise where an Emergency Order of Protection is being requested for the protection of one or both of the parties, that would not be a separate new proceeding but would be part of the underlying dissolution of marriage proceeding.

In deciding child custody, the Illinois court does not consider the gender of the custodial parent. The court considers all relevant factors including the wishes of the child's parents, the wishes of the child, the relationship of the child with the parents, siblings, and any other person who significantly affects the child's best interest, the child's adjustment to home, school, and community, the mental and physical health of everyone, any physical violence by the child's potential custodian, whether directed at the child or at another person, episodes of repeated abuse whether directed at the child or directed at another person, and the willingness and ability of each parent to encourage a close relationship between the other parent and the child.
