Difference between mediation and collaborative divorce

There are many way that people in Illinois resolve disputes. Some will yell at other people, some will want to argue or fight about it and other will want to sit down and discuss the matter to reach a resolution. This is true for minor disagreements and life-changing disputes such as a divorce. Some people will want to fight throughout the divorce through litigation and ultimately have a judge make decisions. Others will want to try and work out the issues between themselves and avoid litigation.

Basic requirements for starting a divorce in Illinois

Couples in Illinois go through high and lows. The marriages that work are able to work through the lows, but not every couple is able to do that. These couples may know that the marriage is over, but in order to actually end the marriage, they must get divorced. This is what happens after all the issues have been decided and a judge signs the divorce decree, but the divorce process must first be initiated before that can occur.
