St. Charles Uncontested Divorce Attorney

St. Charles Uncontested Divorce Attorney

Lawyer for Common-Sense Divorce Negotiations in Kane County

If your relationship with your spouse has broken down to the point where it is no longer fixable, a divorce might be your only option for moving forward. You may have done all that you can, but the reality is that sometimes two people simply grow apart over time. Ending your marriage, however, does not mean that you must hate the person that you married, nor does it mean that the divorce process itself must be bitter and contentious.

I am Attorney Matthew M. Williams of the The Law Office of Matthew M. Williams, P.C., and I realize that, in most divorce cases, both spouses want the same thing: an efficient resolution that gives each party what they need to begin building a happier, healthier life. Too often, divorcing spouses waste time, energy, and money fighting over minor details. In my practice, I prefer to channel that energy into productive negotiation, often saving my clients time, money, and unnecessary stress. If you and your spouse are willing to put your differences aside and work together, I can help you obtain an uncontested divorce.

What Is an Uncontested Divorce?

Some people use the phrase "uncontested divorce" in reference to cases involving spouses with few marital assets and no children who agree on the terms of the divorce before the petition is even filed. While this is an example of an uncontested divorce, it is not the only situation in which an uncontested divorce is possible.

An uncontested divorce is simply a divorce that does not require intervention from the court to make decisions on the relevant issues. This means that a couple with substantial wealth and several children could complete an uncontested divorce by being willing to work together before and after filing the petition to dissolve your marriage. You will need to reach an agreement on matters such as marital asset distribution, spousal support, parental responsibilities, child support, and any other issues of relevance.

Trusted Divorce Counsel in Illinois

Every divorce is going to have its share of challenges and difficulties, and an uncontested divorce is no exception. Even with a commitment to cooperation, you and your spouse might struggle to resolve your differences. This is where I can help. I have more than 15 years of experience in the practice of the law, and I am trained in various methods of dispute resolution. I am equipped to facilitate and guide your negotiations and keep your discussions focused on the matters at hand. When appropriate, I will also provide advice and offer creative solutions to match your unique circumstances.

Once you and your spouse have reached a tentative arrangement, I will assist you in drafting a formal settlement agreement to be presented to the court. I will ensure that the agreement and any other necessary documents are fully compliant with Illinois divorce laws. With my knowledgeable guidance, you can complete the process quickly, efficiently, and without unnecessary stress.

I can also help you in keeping your costs down by offering flat fees for preparing and filing your uncontested divorce. My flat rates are $1,500 for an uncontested divorce that does not involve minor children and $2,000 for an uncontested divorce if minor children are involved. If your case does not qualify for my flat fees, I also offer reasonable retainers and flexible payment options.
