Efficient Resolution and Empathetic Guidance in an Uncontested Divorce with Birt Family Law

August 2023

Our attorney, Erin Birt, recently represented a wife, we will call Jaime, during her DuPage County uncontested divorce proceedings.

Having recently handled a cases with circumstances similar to Jaime, our attorney understood the delicate nature of Jaime's matter and the importance of swift resolution. Erin was able to guide Jaime through the process efficiently and effectively, ensuring that both parties could move forward with their lives as quickly as possible.

In this case, both parties were in complete agreement regarding the divorce, and they, like many of our past clients, had no children or shared property. This similarity positions our firm well to streamline the process and minimize any potential stress or complications for our uncontested divorce clients with no children.

In terms of the division of debts accrued during the marriage, our client desire was for each party to be responsible for their own individual debts. This is a common and reasonable request, and our firm will ensure that the necessary legal provisions are included in the paperwork to protect those interests.

Additionally, our client had a preference for sharing the responsibility of collective bills such as gas, electric, water, etc. Since our firm often handles similar requests, our team is well-versed in crafting agreements that address those specific concerns. Our divorce plan will outline clear and fair arrangements for the division of those expenses, ensuring that both parties contribute equitably.

Erin's experience in handling uncontested divorces allows us to navigate the complexities efficiently while keeping the client's best interests at the forefront.
