Oak Brook Divorce Lawyers

If you are considering divorce, have made the difficult decision that divorce is inevitable, or are in the thick of attempting to hammer out divorce terms with your ex, you’re no doubt going through a trying time. The fact is that the financial and familial consequences of a divorce are so significant that it can be difficult to fully appreciate the effects from the outset. With a dedicated Oak Brook divorce lawyer on your side, however, you’ll not only have a much clearer perspective moving forward but will also be better prepared to effectively advocate for those matters that you prioritize as your top concerns. 

The Primary Elements of Divorce

No two divorces are exactly alike, but they all contain the same basic components (as applicable), which include:

By discussing your goals and priorities with an experienced divorce lawyer, you’ll not only be better prepared to focus your energy on advocating for your best interests but will also have more leverage in your divorce negotiations. 

Your Divorce Negotiations

Ultimately, you and your divorcing spouse will need to come to mutually agreeable terms that you are both willing to sign off on for every component of divorce that applies to your situation. You’ll have many opportunities to make this happen, but if there is an issue that you are unable to resolve, the court will do so on your behalf. The more terms you are able to thrash out with your ex, the fewer the court will need to handle for you. Toward this end, all of the following options are available to you:

  • If you and your spouse are able, you can negotiate terms between yourselves – with your respective Oak Brook divorce lawyers’ guidance.
  • If communications and/or the ability to negotiate has broken down between you and your soon-to-be-ex, your respective lawyers can step in on your behalf.
  • Mediation is also available. At mediation, you, your divorcing spouse, and your respective divorce lawyers will negotiate terms under the practiced guidance of a professional mediator who will help you better understand how your case will likely proceed in court and better understand your divorce options. The results of mediation are not binding unless and until you and your spouse sign off on them.
