About Uncontested Divorce in Illinois
Divorce is the legal process of ending a marriage when one or both spouses decide it should not continue. The state of Illinois recognizes both fault and no-fault divorce. Either type of divorce may be contested or uncontested.
A contested divorce is a divorce in which the spouses are not in agreement about the terms of the divorce or the divorce itself. In an uncontested divorce, on the other hand, both spouses have agreed that the marriage should end. Uncontested divorces also require both spouses to agree on all aspects of the separation, including the division of property, responsibility for marital debts, child custody, child support orders and spousal support orders. If both spouses don’t agree on every point initially, uncontested divorce can still proceed if the spouses can come to an agreement during mediation.
Do I Need an Attorney?
In some cases, an uncontested divorce can be completed without involving an attorney. However, it is still wise to consult a qualified divorce attorney in order to ensure that all matters have been addressed and that the settlement reached is in the best interest of all parties. Experienced divorce attorneys can also help to facilitate the mediation process when spouses have not yet agreed on all of the terms of the divorce. Attorney Ana Guzman Lascola has many years of experience working with clients who are pursuing uncontested divorce, and she can help you complete the process as quickly and efficiently as possible.
