Divorce – How to Make the Best Out of a Bad Situation

Certainly, divorce is not something you expect to encounter in your life. Ending a relationship does not only separate two individuals but it also tears up families, especially when there are children involved. There’s no other way to put it – getting a divorce is a difficult decision and it takes a heavy toll on everyone involved. Since Illinois is a no-fault state, that means the state does not require you to prove that your spouse did something wrong in order to get a divorce. By merely stating irreconcilable differences a divorce can be filed and the marriage will be dissolved.

Why do contested divorces make things worse for both sides?

Apart from the time and resources spent on litigation, contested divorces cause inconvenience and pain to the family. Getting a divorce in a no-fault state like Illinois is quite straightforward as it simply requires the couples to be estranged for a minimum of six months and to be a legal resident of the state for at least 90 days before filing for divorce. But there are certainly other aspects of divorce such as alimony, division of assets and child custody which might cause a conflict. If you are lucky enough, you might be able to find out a way to come to terms with your partner on all these issues with mutual understanding.

How can a family lawyer help you go through your divorce in a cordial manner?

For starters, a good family lawyer would be able to guide you through all of the laws that are relevant to your case, allowing you to make an informed decision. Furthermore, consulting an experienced divorce lawyer might help you settle all aspects of your divorce outside of court which allows you to avoid the tedious process of litigation. Empowered with the knowledge regarding the recent changes in legislation, you might be able to make the best of a bad situation and get through your divorce in a cordial way without any major conflicts over the division of assets, alimony or child custody.

Divorces can become quite complicated when one partner is unwilling to be reasonable which forces the other person to opt for litigation. If you are stuck in such a situation and wish to get more information on this topic, schedule a free consultation with an experienced divorce lawyer by contacting Cesario & Walker at 630-920-8800.
