What is an Uncontested Divorce in Northbrook?

An uncontested divorce under Illinois law is a divorce where the spouses do not have any issues in dispute. This means that the parties have come to an agreement about all legal matters in their case, including the equitable distribution of marital property, spousal maintenance, and any other matters. If the parties share minor children, they have also reached an agreement about all child custody and child support issues, and they are prepared to allocate all parental responsibilities through a parenting plan.

Many people want to have an uncontested divorce when possible because uncontested divorces usually are more time-effective and cost-effective. There is no need for litigation, so the divorce can be finalized relatively quickly. 

What is a Contested Divorce in Northbrook?

A contested divorce is one in which the parties disagree about even a single issue, and litigation in the divorce is necessary. Contested divorces can take many months, and sometimes even more time, depending upon the circumstances of the case, since the spouses will need to be heard by a judge who will decide any disputed issues. 

Mediation to Achieve an Uncontested Divorce

Even if you start out with a contested divorce, you may be able to have an uncontested divorce through negotiation or by attending mediation with your ex. Through divorce mediation, many spouses can resolve disputes in order to have an uncontested divorce.

Joint Simplified Dissolution of Marriage

A joint simplified dissolution of marriage under Illinois law is always an uncontested divorce, but there are additional requirements to have this quicker type of divorce case. In addition to reaching an agreement about all issues and potential disputes, the following must also be true in the divorce case:

  • Marriage cannot last any longer than eight years;
  • Spouses cannot share any children, and neither spouse can be pregnant or involved in an adoption process;
  • Spouses cannot own any real estate;
  • Assets must total less than $50,000; 
  • Spouses cannot hold joint retirement benefits;
  • Spouses cannot jointly have $10,000 of retirement assets or more;
  • Each spouse must not have an annual income of more than $30,000.

To be clear, a joint simplified dissolution of marriage is a type of uncontested divorce, but it has many additional requirements.
