Only a small percentage of Illinois divorce cases go all the way through trial. Most involve one or more disputed issues that must be carefully analyzed and negotiated — such as child custody, property division, spousal maintenance or all of these. On the other side of the spectrum, relatively few cases are truly “uncontested,” with both spouses agreeing on all issues upfront and throughout the proceedings.
Perhaps the most common path to resolution is for the parties, with guidance and advocacy from their respective divorce lawyers to reach a marital settlement agreement. A judge must then review your agreement at a prove-up hearing and, if it is approved, an order for dissolution will be entered.
It is critical to hire a seasoned trial attorney from SAM LAW OFFICE, LLC, who will not be intimidated if your situation does ultimately demand resolution in a courtroom.
