Divorce is Hard: Working with Your Divorce Attorney Shouldn’t Be

Posted by Phineas Gray on June, 2017

Palatine Divorce Lawyers at the Law Office of Fedor Kozlov, P.C., know that divorce is one of the most stressful life events a person can experience.  Whether you were surprised by the divorce filing or were the person who initiated the divorce, you may find yourself struggling with some unexpected emotions.  Anger, sorrow, loss, and regret are all very common feelings for people to experience during the divorce process.   That is why is it so important to find the right divorce attorney.  The divorce attorneys at our office are experienced professionals that know that increasing the strife between divorcing parties is not good for anyone involved, especially if there are children of the marriage.  Therefore, they work with you to find situation-specific solutions that are more likely to lead to a solution all parties find satisfactory.  Our goal is to get you through your divorce as quickly and fairly as possible, preserving accrued assets for you and your former spouse, and not forcing you to spend waste them on a drawn-out legal battle, from which only the attorneys will profit. That does not mean we will avoid a fight, when one is necessary to protect your interests.

When is a fight necessary?  When both parties are willing to be reasonable and negotiate, you can have what is known an uncontested divorce.  In an uncontested divorce, the parties are able to agree about financial issues and any child custody arrangements.  Uncontested divorces are generally less expensive and much quicker than contested divorces.  They also tend to make it easier to transition from spouses to co-parents when children are involved.  Of course, we also know that not every divorce has a potential peaceful resolution.  If your soon-to-be-ex is unwilling to negotiate, it can impossible to preserve your rights without getting contentious.  We call this a contested divorce.  There are several issues that people might contest in a divorce: asset division, spousal maintenance, child support, and, most significant for many people, child custody issues.  Obviously, a contested divorce is not the idea, but, the reality is that if things were ideal you would not be seeking a divorce.
