When parties are in agreement with regard to the terms of the divorce, an uncontested divorce may be sought. Though such a spirit of agreement will expedite the process, save money, and probably save a great deal of grief, an Illinois divorce lawyer or divorce mediation professional will still be needed to help facilitate the appropriate paperwork, filings, and courtroom appearances, as well as ensure that your best interests are being served.
When the parties are in disagreement, a divorce attorney in Illinois will provide the representation needed to negotiate or litigate until a divorce agreement is achieved. Contested divorces often are difficult due to disagreement with regard to splitting marital assets, including the home, as well as arriving at child support, child custody, and visitation agreements. Even when you are making every effort to be agreeable, it’s important to have a Chicago family lawyer who will serve as your advocate and protector, ensuring that you’re not willing to give in to unreasonable demands in order to “get it over with” or unwittingly fall victim to tactics the other side may use that you would be ill-prepared for without representation.
