Uncontested Versus Contested Divorces
There are two types of Illinois divorce. In a contested divorce, spouses disagree on certain divorce terms such as child custody, alimony or property division. If the divorce is uncontested, spouse are in agreement. Uncontested divorces are faster than contested divorces since there are no further issues that require negotiation. The shorter the process, the more money you may save.

We can represent you in mediation sessions and use our negotiation skills to get you what you are legally entitled to receive. Do not settle for an uncontested divorce simply to get things over with. When you disagree with your spouse, it is important to seek legal advice and expose alternative avenues for obtaining results. We will help to explore these possibilities as they apply to your case.
How Is Property Divided In A Divorce?
One of the biggest concerns divorcees have is property division. In Illinois, property is divided in accordance with equitable distribution laws. This means that assets and debts are not necessarily divided equally, but equitably. The court will take into consideration factors such as each spouse’s contributions to assets and debts, the length of the marriage, property values, marital agreements and spousal support. We will fight for what is yours and shield you from debts your spouse may have incurred. You may have some questions about divorce if you are in a same-sex marriage. We can address your concerns and explain how divorce laws apply to your individual case.
