Lawyers for Divorce Settlements in Naperville and DuPage County

If you are expecting to get a divorce, you may be preparing for heated arguments and difficult legal battles. However, your marriage does not have to end in this way. While a contested divorce may be unavoidable in some cases, many couples are able to work together to resolve the various issues involved in legally dissolving their relationship. Doing so can have many benefits, and it can help minimize the emotional fallout of divorce and the time and costs involved. It can also allow divorcing parents to establish a new relationship where they can work together to meet their children's best interests.

The Law Office of Ronald L. Hendrix, P.C. can provide the legal help you need throughout the divorce process. With more than 35 combined years of experience, our lawyers can ensure that you understand the requirements you will need to meet, and we can assist in identifying and resolving any outstanding issues. We will help you complete your divorce as efficiently as possible, allowing your family to move on successfully from the end of your marriage.

Reaching a Settlement in an Uncontested Divorce

During your divorce, you will need to make decisions about how you and your spouse will separate your lives from each other and how certain matters will be handled going forward. These include:

In an uncontested divorce, you and your spouse will work to reach a marital settlement agreement that addresses all of these issues, as well as any other matters that need to be settled before your marriage can be dissolved. In some cases, you may be able to reach decisions through negotiation, either privately between yourselves or with the assistance ofmethods of alternative dispute resolution such as mediation or collaborative law to create your settlement.

Once you have reached a settlement that both parties agree on, you will need to complete formal settlement agreements and attend a "prove-up" hearing to finalize the divorce. In an uncontested divorce, one party will hire an attorney, who will prepare the settlement agreements and final paperwork. The attorney will also guide you through the paperwork and final court appearance in front of the judge. The judge will review the settlement, and if he or she approves of the decisions made, your divorce decree will be issued, and your marriage will be legally dissolved. The divorce decree is a legally-binding court order that both of you will be required to follow going forward. If either ex-spouse does not follow its terms, or if one of you experiences significant life changes, you may return to court for post-decree modifications or enforcement.

Contact a Naperville Divorce Attorney

Even if you plan to complete your divorce with minimal conflict, you will still want to work with an attorney to create a divorce settlement. However, a divorce lawyer can only represent one party. If your spouse's attorney has created a settlement that contains the decisions the two of you have made, you should review this settlement with your own attorney before filing it in court. Your lawyer can help you identify any issues or concerns that should be addressed while making sure your rights are protected as you complete your divorce.
