Best Local Divorce Lawyers in Chicago

If you are facing a divorce, you are dealing with a lot of stress, emotional turmoil, and important considerations that will help shape you and your children’s future. In other words, you need one of the best local divorce lawyers in Chicago on your side. 

Your Divorce

Your divorce won’t look exactly the same as anyone else’s, but it will contain the same basic components, including (as applicable):

Each of these terms can reverberate meaningfully into you and your children’s future. 

Coming to Mutually Acceptable Terms

The fact is that you and your divorcing spouse will have to come to mutually acceptable terms related to each component that applies to your divorce before it can be finalized (or the court will do so on your behalf). This does not, however, mean that you and your soon-to-be-ex have to magically agree on every term that comes before you (which very rarely happens). Instead, each of you – along with your respective divorce lawyers – will have many opportunities to hammer out terms that you are both willing to sign off on, including:

  • The least intrusive path forward is for you and your spouse to negotiate terms between yourselves and, once they’re established, present them to your respective lawyers, who will help ensure that these terms support your rights and best interests. 
  • If you need more intervention, your respective divorce lawyers can negotiate on your behalf for terms that you and your divorcing spouse must mutually agree to in the end. 
  • If terms remain unresolved, you can move to mediation, which involves negotiating terms (with or without your respective divorce lawyers by your side) under the guidance of a professional mediator. The mediator will share how your case is likely to be resolved in court (although there is no guarantee) and will help you both see where compromise may be possible. Mediation is often considered preferable to taking one’s divorce before the court, and this can help motivate some spouses to dig a bit deeper when it comes to compromising. One upside of mediation is that it is a private matter, which means there won’t be a transcript and that the results will not be a matter of public record. Further, you can’t be forced to sign off on terms established in mediation, but if you do sign off on said terms, they become binding. 

It’s important to point out that agreeing to divorce terms is not an all-or-nothing proposition. If you can come to an agreement on one or more terms, it means you’ll have fewer terms for the court to address.
