Before Deciding to Divorce

Getting a divorce should be a joint decision made between you and your partner. However, sometimes contentious issues can hinder this process. In these cases, it is important to speak with an experienced attorney to help represent your interests.

Before You Get Divorced, You Must Ask Yourself Many Questions, Including:


  • Is your relationship no longer working for both of you?
  • Have you exhausted all other options, including counseling and speaking with your spouse?
  • Is your marriage causing emotional stress and anxiety?
  • Do all of your conversations end in arguments?
  • Are you and your spouse no longer physically, emotionally, or sexually attracted to each other?
  • Is divorce used as a threat in your marriage?
  • Are you emotionally ready for this huge change in your life and your family?

Guiding You Through the Divorce Process

If the decision to divorce is an amicable one, and both you and your spouse have mutually agreed that this is the best choice for you and your family, the proceedings can be much easier. Dividing your assets and personal property become a matter of agreeing to certain terms and filing the correct legal documents with the Illinois court.

Should you and your spouse be unable to agree, mediation or court litigation may be the best legal route available for your situation.
