Going through a divorce in Illinois is difficult under any circumstances, whether you are on relatively good terms with your spouse or you are engaged in an extremely contentious divorce case. You should always have one of our divorce attorneys Mokena on your side to advocate for your rights throughout your divorce, from your right to marital property to the allocation of parental responsibilities. Our firm can help to ensure that your voice is heard and that you can seek a favorable outcome for your case.
Our divorce attorneys in Mokena handle many different kinds of legal matters that can arise in divorce cases. Examples of some of the types of issues we handle include but are not limited to the following:
In order to file for divorce in Mokena, you will never need to allege fault. Under the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act (IMDMA), all divorces are no-fault divorces in the state. Accordingly, when you file a petition for the dissolution of marriage, you will only need to allege that your marriage has broken down and is beyond repair. The court must find that no efforts on your part to reconcile would be in your best interests.
When the spouses have lived separate and apart for six months or longer, the IMDMA makes clear that the requirement of irreconcilable differences has been met. To be sure, you will be able to prove irreconcilable differences by living separate and apart from your ex for six months or more before your divorce filing.
Uncontested divorces are those in which the parties agree to all terms of the divorce, while contested divorces are those in which even a single issue remains in dispute. If you want to learn more about obtaining an uncontested divorce and helping your case to move more quickly, a Mokena divorce attorney at our firm can assist you.
If you are planning to file for divorce in Illinois, or if you have been served with divorce papers and need representation, an experienced Mokena divorce attorney at our firm can begin working with you today. We know how important it is to have an advocate on your side during a divorce. Contact Demetrios N. Dalmares & Associates, Ltd. for more information.
This place is 1000% recommendable! So far the process has been super smooth and easy to deal with. They placed all my worries out the window and I've slept better knowing they are on my team. Currently in tears knowing I'll be able to resolve this but sad that it's never going to be the family I thought I could have had. It's ok though, it's time to move forward. Thanks DnD.
