Divorce in Illinois can be difficult and complicated, and it is important to have an experienced attorney on your side who can help you from the start. Divorce law includes a range of legal issues, from property division and spousal maintenance to child custody when there are minor children from the marriage. When you need advice about divorce or an advocate to guide you through the process, you should get in touch with a Tinley Park divorce lawyer who can help you. An attorney at Demetrios N. Dalmares & Associates, Ltd. can speak with you today about your divorce case.
Divorces in Tinley Park can give rise to many different types of legal issues, including but not limited to the following:
Illinois is a “no-fault” divorce state, which means that neither spouse needs to prove grounds for divorce. Rather, under the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act (IMDMA), the no-fault requirement is: “Irreconcilable differences have caused the irretrievable breakdown of the marriage, and the court determines that efforts at reconciliation have failed or that future attempts at reconciliation would be impracticable and not in the best interests of the family.” When the parties have lived separate and apart for at least six months, then “there is an irrebuttable presumption that the requirement of irreconcilable differences has been met.”
Divorces in Tinley Park can be contested or uncontested. In an uncontested divorce, the parties have reached an agreement about any disputes, including the division of marital property, maintenance, and child custody and support issues if they share minor children. In a contested divorce, one or more issues remain in dispute, and the parties will need to go before a judge who will decide the issues.
Since uncontested divorces do not require a judge to rule on issues in dispute, they tend to be faster and more cost-effective. You may be able to move from a contested to an uncontested divorce by going through divorce meditation or seeking alternative methods to resolve any disputes.

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.
