Most of the clients I help with an uncontested divorce walk out of court smiling. Sure, on one hand divorce can be a difficult time. But on the other hand, if you filed for divorce, and then you get divorced, you’ve just accomplished something you need to move on with life. I highlight some of the benefits of uncontested divorce in this article. Or contact me now to get the ball rolling.
You may ask . . .
How quickly can I get divorced?
Uncontested divorces can be quick. Why? There’s a lack of fighting. Want to be in court for a year or more? Fight about your divorce. When people fight, lawyers file motions – documents asking the court to do something. Motions can be filed about small issues. But motions can take a very long time to be heard. For example, a motion could take 6 months to be decided by a court.
Getting divorced quickly is great. But you may also ask . . .
How affordable is uncontested divorce?
Is an uncontested divorce free? Not if you use a lawyer. Is that a bad thing? No. You get what you pay for, after all. If you are thinking about an uncontested divorced, great thought! But don’t mess things up by trying to do the divorce yourself. And please, don’t use a website that isn’t run by lawyers and just does “document preparation.” I have multiple clients that handled their divorces themselves. And where are they now? Back in court. They hired me to fix problems they caused. For a bit more about that, see my article, “Online divorce? Think divorce deja vu.”
What is the process for an uncontested divorce?
The process is pretty simple. Basically, you engage me to represent you. Then, you give me information. I draft documents. You and your spouse sign them. I go to court with you. Then, you are divorced. You can read a bit longer explanation at “DuPage County uncontested divorce process.”
