Is an Uncontested Divorce Right for You?

Posted on in DuPage County divorce lawyer

uncontested divorce, contested divorce, Illinois divorce lawyer, divorce settlementA contested divorce is a divorce case in which you and your spouse are unable to reach agreement terms. Your divorce will be contested if your spouse disagrees about property division, doesn’t want a divorce, or disagrees about child custody, child support, or alimony. If you and your spouse can’t reach an agreement on these major issues, you’ll need to go through the legal process for a contested divorce. If you and your spouse agree, however, you may be able to significantly reduce your costs and investment of time by opting for uncontested divorce.

In an uncontested divorce, you may be able to work with an Illinois divorce attorney who accepts a flat fee for handling your case. This gives you knowledge upfront about what to expect, whereas litigation fees and costs can spiral out of control quickly for a lengthy contested case. The flat fee for an uncontested divorce include paperwork drafting and a review. If you decide that an uncontested divorce is best for you, you will retain the majority of the decision-making power. The only role of judge in an uncontested case is to approve the paperwork detailing the terms of your agreement. Since you can frequently get these papers drafted and accepted quickly, you’ll be able to move on with your life sooner rather than later. There is no need to go through traditional litigation if you and your spouse are able to agree on the major issues in the divorce. Save time, money, and headaches by working with an Illinois divorce lawyer who specializes in uncontested divorce. There’s no need to drag out the time period for receiving your divorce decree. If you and your spouse have been able to reach an agreement on child custody, alimony, child support, and property division, you can benefit from hiring an Illinois uncontested divorce attorney today.
