Our family attorney retired in my small town, and I needed someone I could trust and felt comfortable with. I’m glad I went to Besserman Law Office. Deborah is extremely professional, courteous, and goes above and beyond to get things done.

Frequently Ask Questions (FAQ) of Divorce

Do we Need To Wait Before we File for a No-Fault Divorce?

Not always. In the case, you as well as your spouse, have lived apart for a continuous period of at least six months before admission of the divorce judgment, the two-year separation requirement could be waived, but only if you both consent in writing to do this. In case the two of you cannot consent, then you will have to satisfy the 2-year condition.

Do you know the Important Legal Problems in a Divorce?

The important problems that commonly come up in divorce cases are property division, child custody and visitation, child support, and alimony.

Partners can enter into an agreement, property settlement agreement or divorce agreement, to resolve all or a number of the problems presented by their divorce case. This agreement, and, in particular, any arrangements regarding child custody and child support, will need court acceptance.

They will have to fight it out in court where a judge will determine for them under the principles of Illinois law if spouses can not agree on any of the problems.

What’s a Legal Separation?

If you are living separate and apart from your spouse, you can petition a court to allow you a legal separation and fair support or alimony. Either spouse will not be prevented by a ruling for legal separation from filing for divorce after.
