If you are planning on getting divorced and you can’t reach an agreement on major issues with your spouse, such as how to divide the assets and debts; whether maintenance (also known as alimony or spousal support) will be paid, and if so, how much and for how long; where the children will live and how to divide parenting time, then most family law attorneys will describe your divorce as “contested.”
This usually means that one party will file a petition for dissolution of marriage in the appropriate county and that a trial judge may ultimately decide the major issues based on evidence and arguments your attorney presents to the court.
If your divorce will be contested, it is important that you are represented by attorneys whose primary area of focus is family law, otherwise known as domestic relations, divorce, or matrimonial law. That way, you can be sure that your lawyer knows the ins and outs of the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act and other laws and local procedural rules that will substantially impact your case. Be sure your chosen lawyer has extensive experience in both negotiating and litigating divorce cases through trial.
