Uncontested Divorce Lawyer in Yorkville

Yorkville Uncontested Divorce Attorney

Kendall County Attorney for Negotiated Divorce Settlements

It is seemingly impossible in today's world to go more than a few days without reading news headlines or tabloid articles about contentious and bitter divorce proceedings involving actors, athletes, and other high-profile individuals. In fact, many of us seem surprised when a well-known couple decides to divorce amicably. Because drama sells magazines, the average person might assume that most divorces turn into courtroom fights, full of anxiety, stress, and anger. The reality, however, is that many divorcing couples are able to resolve their differences without the need for a trial in front of a family court judge.

My name is Attorney Matthew M. Williams, and I am the founder of and principal attorney at the The Law Office of Matthew M. Williams, P.C. in Aurora, IL. I believe that there is no need for divorce to be a cruel and unforgiving process. If you and your spouse are willing and able to work together, your divorce can be completed amicably and with a spirit of hope for the future. I have helped many clients obtain uncontested divorces in my career—a career that includes more than 15 years in the practice of the law. With my background, knowledge, and training, I am equipped to help you finalize your divorce quickly and efficiently so that you can move on with your life.

The Advantages of an Uncontested Divorce in Illinois

In order for an uncontested divorce to be successful, you and your spouse must be willing and able to overcome your differences and work together in addressing the relevant issues of your situation. You will need to negotiate an agreement on all of the major divorce-related concerns, including but not limited to:

There are a number of potential benefits associated with an uncontested divorce compared to a litigated divorce. Because an uncontested divorce allows you to avoid a trial, the process is usually much faster and costs far less than a case that requires litigation. Additionally, the negotiations and discussions that lead to an uncontested divorce settlement are private and confidential, while a divorce that takes place in the courtroom becomes a matter of public record. Finally, an uncontested divorce keeps control of the situation in the hands of you and your spouse—the ones who will be most affected by the outcome.

Why You Still Need an Attorney

If you and your spouse have agreed to pursue an uncontested divorce, there is a good chance that you have reached at least a tentative agreement on most of the important issues. With that in mind, it might seem unnecessary to hire a lawyer, but I would not advise skipping out on legal counsel. The laws that govern divorce in Illinois can be confusing and complicated, and even the smallest oversight could cause delays in the process.

At my firm, I handle every case personally, which means that I will work with you in reviewing your agreement, sorting out the details that remain, and completing the necessary paperwork. I will also help you avoid costly mistakes by identifying possible problems before they arise. As part of my commitment to my clients, I offer flat fees for preparing and filing an uncontested divorce, with rates starting at just $1,500 plus court costs. If you and your spouse need help to resolve any remaining issues, you might not qualify for my flat fees, but reasonable retainers and flexible payment plans are also available.
