Dioceses join together in fight over Illinois civil union law

Father's Family Fights for Custody of 11-year-old

A custody hearing will be held in McHenry County later this week in a case involving an 11-year-old boy, his father's family and his long-absent mother and her family. The mother was absent because she was in prison for attacking her husband (the boy's father) with a sledgehammer in 2001. Released in 2009, she has not sought visitation or custody rights. The issue came up only because the father, whose permanent injuries did not keep him from caring for the child, passed away a couple of weeks ago.
