Getting an uncontested divorce can be quick and affordable. And you can use a lawyer. Let me elaborate.
Uncontested divorce is quick because it is by agreement. Fighting in court can take a long time. For example, even the most simple motion can take months to be heard. In contrast, in an uncontested divorce, instead of fighting about small issues, parties agree on all issues. With the process I use, my client only has to come to court once – at the end of the divorce.
Affordable – with a flat fee
Uncontested divorce is affordable because you do not have to pay a lawyer for seemingly endless trips to court. For example, in a divorce where there is disagreement, a lawyer might have to got to court four or more times just for one motion filed with the court. And going to court doesn’t take just one hour – it can take half a day.
With the process I use, I can offer a flat fee for an uncontested divorce in Illinois. This means that your costs in a divorce can be predictable – unlike hiring a lawyer to fight in court.
Starting an uncontested divorce
Starting an uncontested divorce in Illinois can be very easy.
Below is the most simple explanation of the process:
- Retain me for a flat fee
- Give me information
- Review documents I provide
- Execute the documents with your spouse
- Go to court once to finalize the divorce
I get many calls from people who have heard that a divorce takes years, or six months, or something else. They talk to uncles, friends, cousins – they hear all sorts of things. The best thing to do is call me to make it as simple as possible.
Many of the divorces handle take less than one month from my first contact with a client, to the day it s finalized in court. Sure, some take long. And some are quicker. The point is that an uncontested divorce can be quicker than you think and can help you move on with life.
