Guiding You Through The Complexities Of Divorce
The emotional strain of divorce can be difficult for anyone to bear. Life as you have known it is changing in a variety of ways. You likely have many questions about the future of your finances and, if you have children, what life will look like for them going forward. At Scott W. Sheen & Associates, P.C., we understand your concerns. We help families in northern Illinois navigate the complex Illinois family law issues surrounding divorce, so they can move toward their new lives as smoothly as possible.
Establishing Divorce Settlements
When working through the divorce process, it is best to negotiate terms both parties can agree to whenever feasible. Even if you agree on everything amicably, you need experienced legal counsel to show you how your decisions could potentially affect your future.
There are three ways divorce decrees are reached:
- Negotiations during which both parties come to agreeable terms
- Mediation with a third party if an agreement cannot be reached through negotiations
- Trial before a judge if negotiations and mediation fail to produce a settlement
At Scott W. Sheen & Associates, P.C., we understand that litigation can be costly and stressful. Though we strive to settle divorce cases out of court whenever possible, we are prepared to go to litigation if it best serves your interests.
