Batavia Contested Divorce Attorney
Personalized Divorce Solutions in Batavia, IL
Are you considering filing for divorce, or has your spouse served you divorce papers? If you answered yes to either question, there is no doubt that you have a lot on your mind right now. Most newlyweds don't envision their marriage ending in divorce, and when a person realizes their marriage is beyond repair, it is often a very stressful experience. All marriages are a huge emotional and financial investment, which makes dissolving a marriage very complex and tense.
Whether you're excited to move on or you're alarmed at the situation, you are not alone. I am prepared to listen to your needs and help uphold your best interests. Together, we will address issues concerning child custody, visitation, child support, spousal support, property division, division of assets, and the division of debts where applicable. I want to make this process as simple as possible so you can focus on adjusting to this new phase of your life.
Contested Divorce vs. Uncontested Divorce
Few divorces are 100% uncontested, meaning spouses compromise on the major issues concerning child custody, support and visitation, as well as asset and property division, without having to go to court. Uncontested divorces move through the courts much faster and are more affordable than divorce litigation.
Many divorces, however, are contested. This means that not all divorcing couples can easily agree on the terms of their divorce. Contested divorces typically occur when there are minor children involved, family-owned businesses and high financial stakes.
Given the sensitive nature of the situation, I will not only help you navigate your contested divorce properly, but I will treat you with the empathy and attention you need to make this time a little bit more bearable. It is vitally important to retain a compassionate Batavia attorney like myself to represent your divorce litigation.
Batavia Contested Divorce Lawyer by Your Side
Since earning my law degree, I have represented over 150 clients in their matrimonial and family law matters. Prior to entering the field of family law, I worked as an Assistant State's Attorney in DeKalb County, IL. This experience enabled me to sharpen my communication skills and taught me how to speak persuasively, which are skills that I will put to work when representing you during a contested divorce matter in Illinois.
While I make every attempt to help my clients effectively handle their contested divorce through mediation, which is an ideal alternative to court, an uncontested divorce is not always realistic. If your spouse is unreasonable or makes irrational threats that may affect child custody or prevent you from getting your fair share of the property and assets acquired during your marriage, I am fully prepared to do what it takes to protect your best interests and utilize the law to your advantage.
I am dedicated to helping you through this difficult time. Call (630) 280-3879 or make an appointment online for a FREE case review.
