Experienced Central Illinois Divorce Attorneys
Divorce is a legal proceeding whereby a marriage is dissolved by the court. Divorce proceedings are often initiated by filing a petition with the circuit court. Divorce proceedings may be uncontested or contested. In uncontested divorces the divorcing spouses usually have come to an agreement regarding all or most issues involved in the divorce. Contested divorces are adversarial in nature and will often require the courts to decide one or more issues involved in the case.
Divorce proceedings can involve multiple issues related to children born or adopted to the marriage. This issues include child custody, child visitation and child support. Additionally, property of the marriage is divided during the divorce proceedings. This property can include the marital home, personal property and financial property.
