What is an Uncontested Illinois Divorce?
An Uncontested Illinois Divorce means either both parties are in agreement to divorce and wish to settle their divorce out of court or that a full a divorce settlement has been reached by the parties on all divorce and custody issues through mediation 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.

We offer a low rate hourly uncontested divorce for parties that have not previously worked with a divorce professional but want to save costs.
