Chicago Uncontested Divorce Lawyer
Consult a Divorce Attorney in Chicago Today
In an uncontested divorce, the settlement is agreed to by both parties. If your spouse does not agree to the settlement or makes a counter-demand, it is not considered uncontested divorce. I, Attorney Mitch Furman, have helped many spouses seeking an uncontested divorce to successfully carry out the divorce procedure while protecting their interests and minimizing the time and stress involved.
In order to obtain a no-fault divorce in the state of Illinois, the following must apply:
- The spouses must have lived separate and apart for over 2 years ("Separate and apart" does not necessarily mean living in two separate houses, even if the parties resided in the same household, the "separate and apart" criteria may apply)
- The spouses must cite irreconcilable differences as the breakdown of the marriage
- Any effort to reconcile the marriage has been unsuccessful and it no longer suits either party to continue any attempts at reconciliation
One of the big advantages to uncontested divorce is that much of the emotional trauma of divorce can be avoided. Many are able to resolve their problems amicably in a setting that they are both comfortable in with the help of a skilled attorney. An attorney from the firm can begin assisting you immediately.
