Illinois legal assistance with a contested divorce

In fact, while a large portion of divorces are done with both parties in agreement, there are situations when one spouse will contest the divorce.

Divorce can be a difficult situation for any Illinois couple, but it is particularly complicated when there is a significant amount of money involved and it is a high-profile marriage. There can be complex property division, items in dispute, and the need to navigate the difficult pathways that accompany such a situation.

Spouses who can sit down and talk through contentious issues may reach agreements that will be less costly and less stressful, and they might even learn new negotiating skills that will help their post-divorce communications.
