Filing for an Uncontested Divorce in Illinois

Posted on in Divorce

Wheaton uncontested divorce lawyerWhile it is true that some couples do not end their marriages on the best of terms, many divorces are amicable, with both partners knowing that divorce is the best option for everyone. Getting a divorce means you will have to make some difficult decisions about your life and your children’s lives. Even though you may not agree on everything, your divorce does not have to be a strenuous process. An uncontested divorce can be preferable and beneficial for everyone involved -- that is, if you are able to cooperate and negotiate with your spouse.

An Uncontested Divorce May Be Right for You

Contrary to what many people believe, most divorces are “uncontested” because they are settled outside of the courtroom. Typically, taking your divorce case to court or before a judge is only used as a last resort, because there are many advantages to an uncontested divorce. One of the biggest reasons people choose this type of divorce is because they are usually easier on the family -- especially if there are children involved. Uncontested divorces typically take less time because they are not at the mercy of the court's schedule. Many people are also more satisfied with the results because they were able to negotiate their own divorce settlement and did not have a judge making decisions for them.
