Contested Versus Uncontested Divorce in DuPage County Illinois
Divorce Lawyers Serving Wheaton, Naperville, Oak Brook, Hinsdale and Geneva
Depending on the parties involved and the issues that parties are facing, a divorce can either proceed as contested or uncontested. In an uncontested divorce, the spouses are in agreement regarding all aspects of the dissolution, including child custody, child support and property division. If the divorce is contested, it means that there are one or more issues that the parties do not agree on that must be addressed. Contact our offices to schedule a consultation and discuss your specific situation.
At Andrew Cores Family Law Group, our attorneys have extensive experience guiding clients through even the most complex divorce. We understand the emotions that are involved, and we strive to help you through the process in the most efficient and cost-effective manner possible.
- Contested divorce: Most often, a divorce is considered contested when the parties are in disagreement about one or more aspects of the divorce itself. There can be disputes regarding division of property, division of debt, spousal support or maintenance, or the parenting plan. As skilled attorneys, it is our goal to help our clients navigate these disputes and reach a satisfactory compromise; however, when a compromise cannot be made as skilled litigators we will zealously advocate to protect our clients' interests.
- Uncontested divorce: Conversely, an uncontested divorce is one where the two parties agree on all factors. An uncontested divorce can proceed smoothly, quickly and efficiently. In the hands of an experienced lawyer, your uncontested divorce will end much faster and more amicably than a contested divorce.
Whether you have a contested or uncontested divorce, you need to discuss your issues with an experienced attorney to understand all the legal aspects of the dissolution of your marriage. In the past, we have had clients who approach our office believing that they were ready to proceed with an uncontested divorce. It is not uncommon for these individuals to realize that there are factors that they did not consider when developing their separation agreement. It is the job of an experienced attorney to guide you through these discussions and ensure you have thought of everything before moving forward.
