How Long Will My River Forest Divorce Take?
Since every divorce is different, we cannot say exactly how much time your divorce is likely to take until assessing your specific situation. Generally speaking, an uncontested divorce takes much less time than a contested divorce since the court does not have to make decisions about property division, child custody, spousal maintenance, or other important issues.
An uncontested divorce is a divorce in which both parties agree to all terms. This means that, if there are no minor children from the marriage, the parties agree to everything concerning property division, spousal maintenance, and any other related issues. If there are minor children from the marriage, the parties also must agree to all terms concerning child custody (or the allocation of parental responsibilities) and child support.
A contested divorce is one in which the parties cannot agree to one or more terms. To be clear, even if the parties agree to almost all terms but cannot come to an agreement over a specific issue—such as the amount of spousal maintenance, or the allocation of parenting time—then they will have a contested divorce. Contested divorces take longer because the parties either need to go through a period of negotiations to reach an agreement, or the court ultimately must make a decision about the issue to which the parties cannot agree.
