Types of Divorce in Illinois

Not all divorces end up like Kramer v. Kramer. Many couples are now pursuing uncontested divorces or collaborative divorces as opposed to litigated divorce that end up taking years to settle, cost thousands of dollars, and never seem to be over. Of course, alternatives to contested divorces will not always be appropriate, but it is one option for spouses who want the split to be amicable so they can move on with their lives.

  • Collaborative divorce – Adversarial law is what we practice in the U.S., but there are alternatives. One is collaborative law. Each participant in a collaborative divorce signs a contract promising not to threaten litigation and make a good-faith effort to resolve the issue collaboratively. For more information on collaborative divorce, please have a look at our FAQ.
  • Uncontested divorce – Uncontested divorces are possible when former spouses agree on all issues related to their separation. This includes asset distribution, alimony, and issues related to the children. Most divorces, even otherwise amicable ones, have spouses who disagree on some issues.

  • Trials versus “Prove Up” Divorces – Most divorces do not end up like Kramer v. Kramer in the courtroom. It is rare for even contested divorces to go before a jury. Most divorce decrees are approved by a family court judge after a period of litigation between the two spouses. Litigants are required to provide proof for the judge to render their decision.
