Uncontested and Contested Divorces in Plainfield

Divorce proceedings can vary depending on whether they are contested or uncontested. In uncontested divorces, couples can quickly reach agreements on key issues such as property division, spousal support, and child custody. However, when disputes arise, divorces become contested, potentially leading to trial proceedings.

Property Division

Dividing marital property is a crucial aspect of divorce proceedings. Marital assets acquired during the marriage are subject to equal division. Assets obtained prior to the marriage and that have remained separate from the marital assets may be non-marital and are not subject to equal division.

Spousal Support in Illinois

Maintenance, or formerly known as alimony, may be awarded to ensure financial fairness post-divorce. Factors such as the length of the marriage and each spouse's earning capacity are considered when determining spousal support.

Child Custody in Illinois

Child custody arrangements can be highly emotional and contentious. Illinois courts prioritize the child's best interests, aiming for shared custody whenever possible, but considering sole custody or visitation rights when necessary.

Child Support in Illinois

Both parents are obligated to provide financial support for their children, with child support orders tailored to each family's circumstances, income, parenting time, and are calculated using state guidelines.

We care about your case as much as you do.
