Types of Divorces We Can Help With

No two divorces are the same. Each spouse and marriage are unique, with different issues to resolve. Some divorcing couples are able to work out agreements amicably while others are not able to speak to each other and must rely on their divorce lawyers in Cook County to assist them in reaching their goals for their divorce and their future. Common types of divorces we help with include:

  • Uncontested divorce – In this type of divorce, the couple agrees on the terms of their parting, their children, their debts and assets, as well as maintenance, formerly known as alimony and child support. Because of their agreement, there is no need to have hearings, negotiations, or court procedures. Even though this type of divorce is usually straightforward, it is still essential that you hire an attorney to represent your interests.
  • Mediation – Couples who can’t agree on the issues in their divorce but want to stay out of court can also opt to have mediation. A mediator assists the couple in identifying and talking through the problems but does not make binding decisions. 
  • Default divorce – When one spouse files and the other does not respond or cannot be found, a divorce can be granted by default after certain requirements have been met and a predetermined amount of time has passed.
  • Contested divorce – When the parties cannot agree on the essential issues,  they retain separate attorneys let the judge decide. The couple will be required to attend hearings, settlement negotiations, and sometimes even a trial. Divorces that involve a high net worth, many assets, and liabilities, or other complex issues may need to use this process over the others. 

What Type of Divorce is Right for You?

When determining what type of divorce you should seek, speak to divorce lawyers in Cook County.
