Divorce Lawyers for Negotiating an Amicable Divorce Settlement in DuPage County and Surrounding Areas

Contrary to popular belief, a divorce does not need to be a contentious, bitter process. In fact, many divorce cases can be settled amicably, setting the tone for a cooperative post-divorce future. While news headlines may glorify the drama of a celebrity divorce, the team at Goostree Law Group works hard every day to help clients avoid unnecessary stress and anxiety. We have been helping men and women in DuPage County and the surrounding areas with uncontested divorce proceedings since 2000, and we are prepared to put our experience to work for your family.

Advantages of Uncontested Divorce

In order for an uncontested divorce to be possible, you and your spouse must be able to set aside your differences and work together to resolve the issues associated with divorce. The two of you will need to reach an agreement regarding the relevant concerns before the case is handed over to the court to decide. Depending on your family's circumstances and needs, your settlement agreement may include considerations for:

By reaching an agreement, you can avoid forcing the court to intervene and resolve outstanding issues. As a result, an uncontested divorce can usually be completed much faster and at far less expense than one that is contested.

The Dangers of Representing Yourself

It is not uncommon for a person considering a divorce to skip the costs of hiring a lawyer, especially if there are few unresolved issues. While there is no law in Illinois that requires you to hire a divorce attorney, proceeding without one is not advised. It is far too easy to make a mistake. Even a small mistake could end up costing you thousands of dollars in lost assets or unnecessary support payments, in many cases, we find these mistakes are not reversible.

A divorce attorney is an educated, qualified professional who knows the law and how it applies to divorce cases. If you have reached an agreement with your spouse on the terms of your divorce, you should at least have the agreement reviewed by a skilled divorce lawyer before you submit it to the court. Your attorney can identify any potential areas of concern before they become full-blown problems in the future. In many cases, the expenses associated with such a review are minimal, especially compared to what a single mistake could cost you.
