Contested and Uncontested Divorce in Illinois
Illinois is a no-fault state. That means all divorces are considered to be due to irreconcilable differences. In other words, no one can be legally liable for the cause of the divorce. However, in some cases, liability can be used in court as reasons for or against child custody, property ownership, etc.
If there are disagreements about how child custody and personal property should be divided, then the divorce is officially contested. In a contested divorce neither party can agree on who gets what, so it’s necessary that divorce lawyers get involved. In many cases, contested divorces are decided in court. This is especially true when children and their welfare is involved.
Uncontested divorces are more straightforward. Because they can only be filed if both parties agree to the terms of the divorce—that is, if everything can be divided amicably—uncontested divorces tend to take less time than contested ones.
Do I Need a Divorce Lawyer for an Uncontested Divorce?
It’s always a good idea to have a lawyer when you need to get involved in any kind of legal proceeding. First of all, there’s the paperwork that needs to be filed. If you make a mistake on your paperwork, i.e., filing paperwork in the wrong order or using the wrong forms, you can seriously jeopardize the process.
Secondly, law and the legal language that’s used in it is extremely nuanced. You need to be a professional to be able to interpret it properly. Hiring a divorce lawyer in Oak Park means you get a guarantee that your divorce will be handled properly.
Thirdly, if there are children involved in your uncontested divorce, it’s best to hire a qualified divorce lawyer from the beginning. If something changes during the course of the proceedings and healthy communication falls apart, you’ll need to find a divorce lawyer partway through the process. It’s best to hire a divorce lawyer from the beginning so that they understand your case from beginning to end.
