Lawyers for Contested Divorce Cases in DuPage County and Naperville

Ending a marriage is difficult even when couples can get along well enough to work together, compromise, and reach a settlement on their outstanding issues. However, the divorce process can become much more difficult when the level of conflict between spouses boils over into outright hostility, heated arguments, and actions meant to cause each other emotional, financial, or physical harm. In these cases, it is crucial to have a skilled divorce attorney on your side who can protect your rights and help you determine the best way to resolve ongoing conflicts.

The Law Office of Ronald L. Hendrix, P.C. has represented numerous clients in contentious divorce cases, and our lawyers have over 35 years of combined legal experience. We can provide you with the legal help you need during this difficult time, ensuring that you will be able to address combative or illegal behavior by your spouse and reach a positive outcome to your case.

Protecting Your Rights During a High Conflict Divorce

In many cases, couples choose to work together and pursue an uncontested divorce. By using alternative dispute resolution methods such as collaborative law or mediation, spouses can make compromises and reach a divorce settlement. However, this may not be possible if one or both spouses are unable or unwilling to work with each other. If your spouse insists on rehashing old arguments rather than working to address legal issues related to your divorce, or if they refuse to see things from your perspective or budge from their positions, you may need to resolve your disputes in the courtroom through divorce litigation.

In divorce cases involving significant conflict between spouses, some of the following issues may need to be addressed:

  • Mental health concerns - If your spouse suffers from a mental illness, they may act erratically during divorce, and you may be concerned that they may waste or dissipate marital funds or that they may be unable to care for your children. If your spouse has been diagnosed with depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, narcissism, or another type of mood disorder, we can advise you about whether you should ask the court to perform a mental health evaluation, as well as any other steps you can take to protect your rights and your children's well-being.
  • Substance abuse - We can help you address any concerns you may have about your spouse's use of drugs or alcohol, especially when their actions may affect your children's safety. If necessary, we can ask that your spouse be required to abstain from using these substances before or during their parenting time or that other restrictions be put in place to ensure that your children are safe from harm, such as supervised visitation.
  • Parental alienation - In some high-conflict cases, a parent may attempt to influence their children's relationship with the other parent in hopes of gaining an advantage in disputes over child-related issues. If you suspect that your spouse is committing parental alienation, we can help you take immediate action to protect your relationship with your children.
  • Harassment and domestic violence - Conflict between divorcing spouses can sometimes escalate to the point that one party begins to fear for their safety. If your spouse has started contacting you at inappropriate times or has sent you an excessive number of messages via phone, text, or email, you may need to take steps to prevent further harassment. If they have harmed you or your children, committed verbal or emotional abuse, or acted in a threatening manner, you should seek an Order of Protection that will prohibit them from contacting you or your children and committing any further acts of abuse or harassment.
