What’s an uncontested divorce?

An uncontested divorce is where spouses agree on every aspect of the divorce.  In an Illinois divorce, even seemingly small issues can result in litigation. But with an uncontested divorce, you can avoid that – and the expense and pain that goes along with it.

What if my divorce becomes contested?

If you think the divorce will be amicable, then someone chooses to disagree and fight, then it is still possible to eventually settle, or at least settle on certain aspects of the divorce. However, if you are fighting in court the divorce is not uncontested.

How long does an uncontested divorce take:

The fastest I’ve ever helped someone get divorced – from the day they called me to the day the divorce was finalized – was two and ahalf weeks in DuPage County. But how long it takes you to get divorce depends largely upon how fast you are your spouse review, sign, and deliver the documents I’ve prepared. And it also depends on the court’s schedule.

Do you offer flat fees?

I do. The flat fee for an uncontested divorce does vary, however. For example, if you have kids, own real estate, and own a business, more work is required, and the flat fee is higher. But even though I offer a flat fee, I still provide counseling to my clients – unlike some uncontested divorce lawyers who don’t provide any counseling in flat fee arrangements.

Can both people use the same lawyer?

It’s possible, but not a good idea – really, no lawyer should do it. As a lawyer, I give my client advice. I will only give advice to my client. I cannot give advice to two sides in the same case. That would create a conflict.
