Can My Spouse and I Do Our Own Divorce in Illinois?
Wheaton Family Law Attorneys That Offer Initial Divorce Consultations
Although it may sound shocking to hear from an attorney, the answer is actually yes, you and your spouse can do your own divorce. There are both positives and negatives to handling it all on your own, but it is a possible option to explore.
At Abear Law Offices, we are focused on helping you find the best plan for your circumstances, even if that means that we believe you and your spouse can do your own divorce. A huge advantage would be that you can control your own outcome. Another benefit to you is that you are able to decide the duration of the entire divorce process as well as how much it will cost. Other attorneys may be more worried about the money that is involved and less concerned about how much time it will take out of your busy schedules. The key for that to work is for you and your spouse to be completely honest and fair.
It may sound like divorce litigation is a simple matter, but that is not always the case, and this may not be an appropriate approach. Heavy factors that play in divorces are the division of parenting time and wealth for a marital estate. These factors can prove to be quite difficult when the other party is not being honest and causes you to raise suspicion. Those are areas that our team would be able to handle, reducing your stress.
