Child Friendly Illinois Divorce Option?

Posted by Erin Birt | Sep 06, 2012 | 0 Comments

A child friendly Illinois divorce option is one that minimizes the need for court involvement & litigation and utilizes child specialists when needed.  Resolving family disputes privately and efficiently is the best option for families with children.  The Law Firm of Erin N. Birt, P.C. offers several options to minimize court involvement and/or litigation.  Some options are: Divorce Mediation, Collaborative Divorce, Uncontested Divorce Services. This post will focus on a Child Friendly Illinois Divorce Option.

Child Friendly Illinois Divorce Option? Divorce Mediation:

DuPage County Divorce Mediation and Family Law Mediation is an alternative dispute resolution method that assists parties in reaching a mutually acceptable agreement. Divorce Mediation and Family Law Mediation is confidential and conducted in a supportive, private, and non-adversarial setting.

The benefits of DuPage County Divorce Mediation and Family Law Mediation include:

*Direct communication;

*The parties control the process;

*Mediation agreements are determined by the individuals, not third parties;

*Parties are more inclined to abide by an agreement that they have created;

*Mediation helps narrow the issues (even if an agreement is not reached);

*Mediation is cost and time efficient.

Child Friendly Illinois Divorce Option? Illinois Collaborative Divorce:

Illinois Collaborative Divorce Lawyer, Erin Birt, is specially trained in Illinois collaborative divorce law practices.  As an Illinois collaborative divorce lawyer, Ms. Birt frequently works with clients that recognize the importance of resolving family disputes privately and without the threat of going to court.

The Illinois collaborative divorce law process starts when each party is represented by an Illinois collaborative divorce lawyer. The time efficient and time effective negotiation skills of a collaborative divorce lawyer helps the couple navigate complex Illinois divorce issues in less time and for less cost than a typical litigated divorce.

The Illinois collaborative divorce law process may include the use of a proactive team to provide the couple with unbiased professional assistance. The proactive team may include a child specialist, divorce coach, or a financial specialist.

Child Friendly Illinois Divorce Option? Uncontested Illinois Divorce:

An Uncontested Illinois Divorce means a divorce settlement has been reached by the parties on all divorce and custody issues prior to court involvement.

Many couples are working together, with mediators, or with divorce financial professionals, to settle their divorce.  Such methods can save time and money. Problems arise, however, when the parties attempt to prepare the uncontested Illinois divorce settlement documents themselves and inadvertently fail to prepare legally sufficient documents.  Such mistakes can cause income loss due to missed work for multiple court appearances and create unnecessary and costly post-divorce litigation.

The Law Firm of Erin N. Birt, P.C offers uncontested Illinois divorce services to help parties avoid costly mistakes. The firm offers a Flat Fee Uncontested Illinois Divorce Package as an affordable uncontested Illinois divorce option.

The firm serves clients in Wheaton, Glen Ellyn, Naperville, Warrenville, Winfield, Carol Stream, Bloomingdale, Lombard, Elmhurst, Downers Grove, and Oak Brook as well as other cities located in DuPage County. We also have experience serving clients in Cook County, Will County, and Kane County.
