Divorce Advice: Understanding the Basics

We provide skilled, professional legal representation to clients across the full range of family law issues. If you need family law guidance in DuPage County, Illinois, our attorneys are here to help. Our goal is to offer clients attentive and cost-effective legal guidance. Our Wheaton, Illinois divorce lawyers have the skills and experience needed to help you with:

  • Uncontested Divorce: In Illinois, most separating couples opt for a no-fault, uncontested divorce. To get an uncontested divorce, you and your spouse must reach an agreement on all relevant marital issues — from property division to your child custody. Our Wheaton, IL divorce lawyers have extensive experience helping clients obtain a cost-effective uncontested divorce that protects their rights and interests.
  • Separation Agreement: A separation agreement is a legally binding contract that assigns rights and responsibilities during a separation. Even if you and your spouse are interested in a trial separation, it is best to obtain a written separation agreement for your protection.
  • Divorce Mediation: Though it is necessary in some cases, divorce litigation is not desirable. It can be time-consuming, expensive, and it can cause long-term damage to important familial relationships. Most divorcing couples want to reach an efficient, fair agreement in a low conflict environment. Divorce mediation offers an answer. Our Wheaton, IL divorce attorneys represent clients in divorce mediation and other forms of negotiation.
  • Divorce Papers: Divorce papers are the legal documents that will initiate the legal process. Generally, these papers consist of a divorce petition that is filed, and, if needed, served on another party. It is best to draft divorce papers with guidance from an experienced professional. Similarly, if you were served divorce papers, you need to respond. Call a Wheaton family lawyer right away.
  • Child Custody & Support: Family law issues involving young children are especially sensitive. We represent parents in child custody cases and child support cases. Our Wheaton, IL family law attorneys have experience handling the complete range of custody and visitation cases — from representing parents in reaching a workable joint time-sharing agreement to advocating for parents who are fighting for sole legal custody.
  • Parental Rights: If you are involved in a dispute over parents rights or parental responsibilities in Wheaton, IL, our legal team can help. We have the specialized experience and training needed to handle complex parental responsibility, including cases involving the termination of parental rights.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How Much Does It Cost to Hire a Divorce Lawyer in Wheaton, IL?

The cost of divorce depends on a number of different factors, including the complexity of your case and the method of dispute resolution. If you can avoid litigation, you can save a lot of money. At Keller Legal Services, our Wheaton divorce lawyers strive to help clients achieve favorable, cost effective divorce settlements.

How Long Will it Take to Get a Divorce Finalized?

In most cases, it takes a few months to finalize a divorce. Though, in some cases, an uncontested divorce can actually be finalized even quicker than that. Of course, in other cases, litigation has the potential to drag on for many months, maybe even for years.

Where Do You File for Divorce?

You must file for divorce in your county of residence. As an example, if you and your spouse live in Wheaton, then, most likely, the proper place to file for divorce is at the DuPage County Circuit Court Clerk’s Office.

Am I Eligible for a Summary Divorce?

In Illinois, some couples are eligible for a streamlined divorce. You may hear this type of divorce refer to as a “summary divorce” or “simple divorce”. If you and your spouse do not have children and you only have a limited amount of property/assets, a simple divorce may be appropriate.
