Uncontested Divorce

Des Plaines, Illinois Uncontested Divorce Attorney

Advising Clients throughout Chicago and the Northwest Suburbs

Uncontested divorces are those divorces that involve little, if any, negotiation, disputes, or multiple legal proceedings because both spouses agree to divorce and agree with respect to property division, child custody, visitation, and spousal maintenance. If the spouses disagree with any aspect of the divorce settlement, the divorce becomes a contested divorce.

If you are involved in an uncontested divorce, the Chicago divorce lawyer at the Law Offices of Scott D. Rogoff can assist you with the necessary legal documentation so that you can resolve the divorce proceedings as quickly and painlessly as possible.

Divorce Process

All divorces begin when one spouse files a Petition for Dissolution of Marriage with the appropriate Circuit Court. In Illinois, a spouse may seek a divorce on the no-fault grounds of irreconcilable differences, or the spouse may specify one of the several fault grounds, such as mental cruelty, adultery, alienation of affection, physical cruelty, desertion, drug addiction, infection of a sexually transmitted disease, or conviction of a felony.

If both spouses agree with respect to all aspects of the divorce, including property division and spousal maintenance, the divorce may be filed immediately and should be completed within a relatively short period of time. Conversely, a contested divorce generally involves a comprehensive discovery process, with the lawyers requesting and reviewing information regarding the divorcing spouses, including financial information, personal history, employment history, and background information. Contested divorces often include depositions, subpoenas, interrogatories, document production and review, and court proceedings.

Benefits of an Uncontested Divorce

An uncontested divorce allows divorcing spouses to terminate their marriage and move on with their lives as quickly and cost-effectively as possible. If the divorcing spouses have children, an uncontested divorce can cause less stress and uncertainty to the children involved.
