Contested vs. Uncontested Divorce in Illinois
During the marriage dissolution process, there are numerous legal matters that must be resolved. Some of the most important include:
If both parties can agree on these and other pertinent issues, an uncontested divorce may be possible. In such cases, the parties and their attorneys negotiate a divorce settlement without the involvement of the court. Once the final terms and conditions are agreed upon, the settlement is presented to the court for approval. Another way to handle an uncontested divorce is through mediation. With this option, the two parties agree to craft their settlement with the guidance of a neutral, third-party mediator.
If there are disputes over some (or all) of the legal issues and the spouses cannot resolve these disputes on their own, the divorce will be contested. In a contested divorce, the parties go before the court, where a judge decides how the issues in dispute will be settled. This route tends to be more costly and protracted, but in many cases, it is the only viable option.
