DuPage County Amicable Divorce Lawyers

Glendale Heights Amicable Divorce Lawyers

Attorneys for Uncontested Divorce in Wheaton

There are two basic types of divorce in Illinois: contested divorce and uncontested divorce. In an uncontested divorce, spouses agree on all of the relevant divorce issues including the division of assets, allocation of parental responsibilities and parenting time, child support, and spousal maintenance. An uncontested divorce is a much more straightforward process than a contested divorce, however, it is still a significant legal undertaking.

At McSwain Nagle Giese & Rapp, P.C., we have helped many spouses resolve their divorce-related issues so that the dissolution of their marriage goes as smoothly as possible. Whether you and your spouse agree on all aspects of the divorce, or you still need to resolve one or more concerns, our lawyers are equipped to provide the support and guidance you need.

Helping You End Your Marriage Amicably in Glen Ellyn

If you and your spouse are on relatively good terms, you may wonder if you even need to retain a divorce lawyer. However, it is important to consider the possibility that your divorce may not be as simple as you are hoping it will be. Unexpected complications are common in Illinois divorce cases—even when both spouses commit to a spirit of cooperation. For example, you or your spouse may decide that you no longer agree to the previously agreed-upon terms or you may discover new information that changes the circumstances of your divorce.

Consider the following scenario: Before filing for divorce, a husband and wife sit down together and work out an arrangement for dividing their property. By the time the petition is filed, both parties agree to the terms of the property settlement. A week or so after the filing, however, the wife learns that her husband has a secret bank account in which he has been hiding assets. In light of this new information, it is reasonable that the wife would no longer agree to the property division settlement. An experienced divorce attorney from our firm can help you identify potential problems before they become much larger issues.

Effective Representation for Divorcing Spouses in Naperville

At McSwain Nagle Giese & Rapp, P.C., we believe that divorcing couples can reap significant rewards by working together instead of against each other. However, even amicable divorce cases can involve complex legal challenges. If you or your spouse own complex assets such as trusts, stocks or stock options, or investments, accurately valuing and dividing these assets may be complicated. Joint business ownership involving spouses could also lead to complicated property division issues. Even if these issues do not apply to your case, it is not recommended that you represent yourself during a divorce. It is simply too easy to make mistakes that result in lost assets, unnecessary costs, and additional legal frustrations.

We are fully prepared to help you and your spouse work out any unresolved issues concerning parental responsibilities, asset and debt division, and more.

We are committed to helping you end your marriage quickly and effectively so that you can begin the post-divorce future you deserve.
