How Do I Get a Divorce in Illinois?

Divorce becomes even more difficult if you have children. You and your spouse may disagree on key points related to custody, visitation, and/or child support, which can translate to an exhausting and expensive courtroom battle. You need a skilled attorney on your side to protect the best interests of your children.

With well over a decade of experience in Illinois divorce proceedings, our attorneys can coach and guide you through the divorce process to help you pursue an outcome that is in your best interests. If we can accomplish this through mediation or another collaborative approach, we will. If we must litigate on your behalf, we have the resources and skill to effectively present your interests in court, as well.

Uncontested Divorces — Avoid the Courtroom

Worried about having to go to court? The truth is that most divorces are achieved without the heated courtroom battles we all think of when we hear the word “divorce.” If you and your partner both want the divorce and are willing to work out the terms of your divorce together, then you may have one of two options for uncontested divorce:

Collaborative Law – This form of divorce requires each party to retain their own divorce attorney for counsel. However, there is no trial or litigation. Both parties will sit down in a private room—not a courtroom—and with the counsel of their respective attorneys, negotiate the terms of their divorce on their own. Once the divorce agreement is complete, then the parties will present it to a Family Law Judge to be entered and finalized.

Divorce Mediation – This form of divorce involves one neutral, third-party mediator and each party in the divorce. No other lawyers or legal representation is involved. Instead, the certified mediator will work with the two parties to guide them through the process of negotiating the terms of their divorce agreement. Once the agreement is complete, then it can be entered by a Family Law Judge.
