Divorce proceedings can be expensive and time-consuming, but one way to speed up the process is to file for a simplified dissolution. Only certain couples are eligible for this opportunity, so if you live in Park Ridge or somewhere else in the Chicago area and are interested in filing for a simplified dissolution, it is critical to speak with an experienced divorce attorney who can help walk you through the process.
If all of these requirements are fulfilled, both parties must complete the form, sign it, and present it to the Clerk of the local Circuit Court. The court will also require a copy of the couple’s agreement regarding the division of their assets. After filing the petition, both parties will be required to present their case on the same day. At this point, the parties will also be asked to submit an affidavit to the court stating that all property has been divided as agreed. If all of the requirements are met, the parties have paid all necessary fees, and the proper documentation has been submitted, the court will order a formal dissolution.
Going through a divorce can be physically, financially, and emotionally taxing. Fortunately, there are certain procedures that can help save couples both time and money, including filing for a simplified dissolution.
