Kane County Uncontested Divorce Attorneys
Efficient Divorce Lawyers Serving St. Charles, Batavia, and Geneva
Dissolving a marriage is never easy, but it is made significantly more difficult when both parties cannot agree on key issues. This disagreement causes a divorce to be "contested," and it must go to trial for resolution. If both parties can agree on most of the issues, the divorce can proceed as an uncontested divorce. Even an amicable divorce requires the assistance of an experienced divorce attorney to ensure your rights and interest are protected. At Shaw Family Law, P.C., our attorneys have 30 years of experience handling uncontested divorces. We can assist you in negotiating a favorable agreement and completing your divorce as efficiently and painlessly as possible.
Reaching Agreement in an Uncontested Divorce
The stereotype of a divorcing couple made popular by media images involves a protracted and contentious fight over everything. While some divorces do dissolve into epic battles, that is more the exception than the rule. Many couples are able to sit down and work out an agreement on how to handle divorce matters like property division, alimony/maintenance, allocation of parental responsibilities (formerly known as child custody), parenting time (or visitation), and other matters. We have assisted countless couples in refining the points of these issues. While many of the big issues may have been already decided prior to seeking representation, (i.e. who will keep the house, who will be the residential parent, etc.) an experienced attorney can make sure all of the details are addressed and protect your interests along the way.
Additionally, we make sure that you understand every element of your agreement and that the agreement is properly conveyed to the court. It is important to make sure your divorce order accurately reflects your negotiations with your spouse. When mistakes are made, they can have serious results. We strive to resolve uncontested divorces as quickly as the system will allow, but we also make sure they are handled correctly. Once your settlement is drafted, it must be presented to the court for approval. If the court approves the agreement, the judge can dissolve the marriage.
