Exploring The Option Of Uncontested Divorce

The distinction between a contested divorce and an uncontested divorce is simple: in the former, there are matters of dispute between the parties that will probably need to be resolved in mediation or a contested court hearing. In an uncontested divorce, spouses agree on every divorce-related issue, including:

With an uncontested divorce, you will need to express your arrangements in a settlement agreement for presentation to a family court judge. We can help you identify the issues that need to be addressed and anticipate problems that could come up in the future. We can even assist with finding compromises on those stubborn last points where agreement proves difficult.

Contested Divorce — Maintaining Your Best Interests Throughout The Process

Sometimes pursuing a contested divorce is the only way to achieve your desired outcome or protect yourself from negative tax implications or real estate concerns. If your case must enter the courtroom, our experience with the development and presentation of effective arguments in family court can give you a significant advantage. We can help you pick your battles wisely.

At Lucas Law, we are committed to helping our clients find ways to avoid the expense, stress and uncertainty of contested divorce whenever we can. In many situations, it's mainly a question of helping you understand your rights and responsibilities under Illinois law. Once you learn how a court is likely to rule on an issue under the facts of your situation, you'll be in a good position to develop your own realistic objectives.
