Illinois Custody and Order of Protection

In Sutherlin the trial court was in error when to refused to address the issue of temporary custody of the children, in an action initiated by the wife to obtain an order of protection for herself against her husband.

The court should have found that the wife’s petition for the order of protection was not designed to interfere with the husband’s visitation with the children, and the record should have supported a finding that there was abuse committed by the husband against the wife sufficient to allow for an Order of Protection.
