Experienced Divorce Attorneys Serving DuPage County

Deciding to end a marriage can be an extremely emotional and stressful time for a couple. Whether you or your spouse made the decision to get a divorce, it is likely that you are upset, confused, and anxious about what the future holds. These feelings are usually justified, as a divorce can have an impact on the most important aspects of life — your living situation, your finances, and your ability to see and interact with your children.

Divorce is a complicated process, and it is strongly recommended that anyone seeking a divorce do so with the assistance of an experienced attorney. If you have begun or are in the process of obtaining a divorce in Illinois, the lawyers at Nigohosian & Dahlquist, P.C. can assist you with taking the necessary legal actions to resolve your divorce as favorably as possible.

Uncontested Divorce

An uncontested divorce is one in which the divorcing couple can reach an agreement regarding the issues that need to be addressed before the divorce is finalized. In these cases, the couple will typically present the court with a consent decree that the judge signs, legally implementing its terms.

If you are in the enviable position of being able to come to an agreement with your spouse about the way in which your divorce should be resolved, you may be under the impression that the assistance of an attorney is unnecessary. This is decidedly not the case, and an attorney can help in a number of ways, including the following:

  • Explain your legal rights
  • Ensure that all necessary issues are addressed in the consent decree
  • Negotiate on your behalf with your spouse or his or her counsel
  • Represent you should your divorce become contested

Contested Divorce

In a contested divorce, the divorcing couple is unable to agree about the way issues will be resolved and will litigate the matters in court. Generally speaking, a contested divorce is much more complicated and protracted than an uncontested divorce. Additionally there is significant uncertainty when judges decide matters related to divorce — judges have significant discretion regarding issues like spousal support, child custody, and the division or property. As a result, most people would rather come to a settlement agreement with their spouse than go to court.

Litigating a divorce is an extremely complicated matter. Therefore, the representation of a skilled attorney is critical if your divorce is contested. Without skilled legal representation, the results could prove unfavorable and may have a long-term impact on your life.
