Getting a divorce is never easy. Even when the split between you and your spouse is amicable, there are still a number of outstanding issues that need to be resolved, such as who will get custody of the children and how to divide any marital property. Ideally, you are able to settle these differences and quickly move on with your lives.
Even in this best case scenario, you still need to work with an experienced Barrington divorce lawyer who can guide you through the process. At the SAM LAW OFFICE LLC, we provide skilled, professional representation to individuals seeking–or even just contemplating–a divorce. We can review the specific facts of your case and advise you on the best course of action, whether that is to seek a negotiated settlement, or if necessary to pursue litigation to protect your rights in court.
Illinois is a “no-fault” state with respect to divorce. This means that if you and your spouse have been separated and living apart for at least six months without interruption, a judge will assume there are “irreconcilable differences” and grant you a divorce on those grounds. If you have already negotiated a master settlement agreement with your spouse, the judge can approve that, as well.
Of course, depending on the circumstances, things may not go so quickly or smoothly. There are a number of factors that may complicate a divorce proceeding and thus require more extensive negotiation–or even litigation.
