Uncontested Divorce Reduces Stress And Lowers Costs

Divorce is often portrayed as a stressful, expensive and drawn-out battle between two parties who can hardly stand to be in the same room together. In truth, more couples today are approaching divorce with a collective mindset that their relationship didn't work, and it's time to cooperate with each other to end it and go their separate ways.

An uncontested divorce allows you to end your marriage civilly and privately. Typically, it is significantly cheaper and quicker than a more traditional divorce, and court hearings are usually unnecessary. At The Law Firm of Debra J. Braselton, P.C., we represent clients who want to finalize a divorce efficiently and cost-effectively through the uncontested divorce process. We work with clients throughout DuPage County and the surrounding counties.

It is also important to note that an attorney can only represent one person in any divorce process. It is highly recommended, even in uncontested divorces, that both parties hire legal counsel to review the documents that will be submitted to the court.

Is An Uncontested Divorce Right For You?

Uncontested divorce requires you and your spouse to agree to the basic terms of the essential issues that must be decided, including property division, spousal support and parenting time arrangements. If you and your spouse are far apart on any of these matters and unable to make progress to reach agreement, an uncontested divorce may not be possible.

However, you may be able to work through your disagreements using the collaborative divorce process, which still avoids litigation and saves money. Attorney Debra J. Braselton was among the first Illinois attorneys to be trained in the practice of collaborative law.
