A divorce is never a choice made lightly, and if you and your spouse have decided to travel that path, it can feel as though you are doing so alone, especially if you and your spouse have trouble working together to decide on issues like asset division and parenting time. A New Lenox divorce attorney can help you forge a working relationship with your soon-to-be ex-spouse and get through the process more smoothly than you might be able to without experienced legal assistance.
Some divorces are more amicable than others, and while obviously, a good working relationship to start can be a distinct advantage, some couples simply grow apart. While hostility is not necessary, it is a strength when you know that working through your attorney is your best option, and you need a legal professional who can make negotiation for marital property, parenting time, and spousal support as painless as possible. Very often, proceedings will go more smoothly when a couple does not have to negotiate alone.
In addition to helping smooth out transactions and negotiations between the spouses, a New Lenox divorce attorney can also help manage the inevitable tangential issues that crop up with nearly every divorce. For example, you may need estate planning help to redo your will, or assistance with real estate if you and your spouse decide to sell the marital home. Having to manage these often-complex tasks in addition to going through a divorce can be too much for the average person. An attorney who can anticipate this type of need can be a life-saver, especially when there are children involved in your divorce who deserve your full attention.
If you are able to have a New Lenox divorce attorney file your divorce, it can be a help in itself because an experienced attorney knows the procedure backward and forward, as well as the details that might escape the average person. For example, many couples think that there must be grounds upon which to seek a divorce, but a dedicated divorce lawyer knows that Illinois is a no-fault state. This means that the only ‘grounds’ you need to cite in a petition for dissolution of marriage are irreconcilable differences.
With the right attorney, you are taken care of from the beginning of your divorce proceedings through to the end. Our firm can help handle issues that come up even after your divorce is complete, such as modification requests for spousal support or parental responsibility. A divorce decree is almost never a completely settled document; changes can be made at certain intervals if there is cause, and being able to handle the issue with the same attorney on your team saves considerable time and trouble. Our firm is here for our clients.
When you decide to divorce, you need a dedicated legal professional who understands just how difficult it can be. The New Lenox divorce attorneys at the firm of Law Office of Demetrios N Dalmares and Associates Ltd. stand ready and willing to help you through what can be one of the biggest upheavals in your life.
