When a divorcing couple is able to sit down together and work out important issues, they gain a number of advantages. If a couple is able to resolve most issues between on their own, they may be able to proceed with an uncontested divorce, and with only one of them hiring an attorney to complete their divorce. In most instances, this results in an approach that is the most economical to the divorcing couple, and the divorce can most likely be completed in a substantially short period of time.
Uncontested divorce keeps the divorcing couple in control. Traditional litigation is time-consuming and costly. It pits one divorcing spouse against another in a court battle and strains relationships long after the divorce is final. If you feel that you and your spouse are likely to be able to work out the details of your divorce and the two of you are comfortable with only one of you hiring an attorney, then you may be able to proceed in an uncontested manner. And if things change, the party not initially retaining an attorney is not prohibited from hiring an attorney at any time to represent him or her in the divorce.
To learn more about uncontested divorce, we recommend that you consult with an experienced Illinois divorce attorney who can explain your options and give the guidance necessary for you to choose the right approach for your divorce.
