Uncontested Divorce

Divorce is a highly emotional act. In the midst of those emotions, it may be hard to sort out what needs to be done and make decisions that are in the best interests of the family as you move forward. At the Law Offices of James M. Chesloe of La Grange, Illinois, you have an advocate that will help shoulder the burden of closing one chapter of your life and transitioning into a new way of living.

In Illinois, you may seek an uncontested divorce. James M. Chesloe can help you understand what options are available to you and guide you through the process.

What is an Uncontested Divorce?

An uncontested divorce is sought when a couple agrees completely about getting a divorce, the terms of the divorce, child custody, and any other issue that a judge would otherwise decide in court. In an uncontested divorce there are no negotiations or arguments. The moment a disagreement occurs, an uncontested divorce is no longer a viable option.

James M. Chesloe is an experienced divorce attorney who has handled cases throughout Cook, DuPage and Will counties. He is familiar with the intricacies of those courts, is up to date on and can advise you on how best to structure the uncontested divorce agreement so that it is aligned with Illinois laws.

Is an Uncontested Divorce Right for You?

Some issues to consider when creating an uncontested divorce agreement include:

  • How to handle child custody and visitation
  • How to divide marital assets and debts
  • How to handle child and spousal support

These are major issues to resolve and if you disagree on anything, then uncontested divorce is not the best option. Uncontested divorce is sometimes referred to as a simple divorce because those who opt for it usually do not have children or considerable marital assets, debts or investments. The more you accumulate in a marriage, the less feasible an uncontested divorce becomes.

An uncontested divorce is one of the most cost-effective divorce solutions and can also be handled relatively quickly - in some cases just a few months. Make an appointment to sit down with James M. Chesloe today to determine if an uncontested divorce is right for you.
