You are facing a divorce, and you naturally want the best divorce attorney in Chicago on your side. Because the terms of your divorce will significantly affect you and your children’s future, this is a completely reasonable response. Your future is far too important to settle for anything less.
In order to finalize your divorce, you and your divorcing spouse will need to find a way to negotiate all of the following categories of divorce terms (as applicable):
The terms that you come to on each of these matters will reverberate into your future and should be granted the close legal attention required.
When it comes to negotiating your divorce terms, the best path forward always involves the least amount of intervention possible. If, however, you and your ex are at an impasse regarding one concern or another, you’ll need to progress through the stages of intervention until you land upon mutually agreeable terms (or the court makes all remaining determinations on your behalf). These stages include:
Finally, if your efforts do not result in mutually acceptable terms in every category, the court will step in and make all remaining decisions for you, which is less than ideal but is sometimes a necessity.
If the remaining terms in front of the court involve your shared children, the court will always proceed with the best interest of the children in mind. This is colored by its fundamental stance that children’s needs are best served by maintaining a relationship and spending time with both parents (barring extreme conditions). Finally, if the matter relates to finances, the court will take every factor it deems pertinent into consideration while making what it considers an equitable – or fair – decision.
