There can be many reasons for that. Divorce is sometimes emotional. But an uncontested divorce in DuPage County can be fast, and affordable. So if you need a little extra help convincing a spouse to get started, please check out this article.

Uncontested divorce can be super-fast

One great way to convince someone how fast an uncontested divorce can be is to compare to a litigated divorce – one where people fight it out in court. With that type of case, even the smallest issues can take months to resolve, and more trips to court than you might imagine. Did you know it is not rare for a litigated divorce to take up to 2 years?

Compare that to a flat fee divorce in DuPage County. It can be very fast. I’ve handled such cases that take as little as a couple weeks from start to finish. Most take about one month.

If your amicable divorce is finished quickly, it’s easier to move on with life. And that is the point of divorce.

Uncontested divorce = super affordable

If you hate wasting money on lawyers, than an uncontested divorce in DuPage county is as great choice.

Some people think using a lawyer is always expensive. But I represent clients for a flat fee for an uncontested divorce in Illinois. The flat fee is affordable – and with it you get the following benefits:

  1. A lawyer to ask questions to
  2. Sometime to properly file everything – to avoid delays due to misfiling
  3. Settlement agreements that are professional  – not some garbage of a mysterious website

The bottom line is that when you fight, more of your money goes to lawyers.

When you get an uncontested divorce for a flat fee – with a lawyer – you both keep more of your own money. Doesn’t that sound better?

Even though I also handle litigated cases, I prefer uncontested cases because I have seen the people usually walk away much happier.

Explain how the results can be better

Many people want to fight in court because they think they will prove their case and get what they want. Often, that is not the case.

In fact, judges often tell people that coming to an agreement will get them better results than having the court decide the issues. Believe it or not, that’s often true.

Court cases are messy. Judges have a hard time determining what’s true. The solutions they come up with, though well-meaning, might not actually be the optimal ones. Keep in mind – this is what many judges tell people.
