St. Charles, IL Uncontested Divorce Attorneys
Lawyers for Amicable Divorce Serving Clients in Geneva, Batavia, and Kane County
Seemingly every day, news headlines are full of stories about bitter and contentious divorce proceedings involving celebrities and other high-profile personalities. Such accounts make it easy to assume that every divorce will ultimately deteriorate into a courtroom brawl wrought with stress, anxiety, and intense feelings of anger. The reality, however, is something quite different. Divorce does not need to be a cruel and unforgiving process; it can be completed amicably and with a spirit of cooperation that creates the basis for a more positive future. At Bochte, Kuzniar & Navigato, P.C., we are proud to have helped hundreds of clients through uncontested divorce matters, allowing them to move on with their lives more quickly and often at far less expense than traditional litigation.
The Benefits of an Uncontested Divorce
By considering an uncontested divorce, you and your spouse must be willing and able to work closely together in resolving the various issues inherent to the process. In most situations, you will need to reach a full settlement agreement prior to the presentation of a judgment for dissolution of marriage. Depending on your specific circumstances, your agreement will need to include provisions for:
- Identification, valuation, and division of marital property;
- Spousal support/alimony;
- Debts and attorneys’ fees;
- Allocation of parental responsibilities (child custody) and parenting time (visitation);
- Child support; and
- Any other necessary considerations.
An uncontested divorce is a marital dissolution that does not require the intervention of the court to resolve outstanding issues. Therefore, the process can usually be completed much faster, requiring less time and financial investment on your part.
An Experienced Illinois Divorce Lawyer Can Make a Difference
When you and your spouse agree to pursue an uncontested divorce, you will probably have already reached an agreement, at least in principle, on several of the more major divorce considerations.

Our experienced attorneys can not only help you and your spouse sort out the remaining details, but we will also assist you in completing the necessary paperwork appropriately and in accordance with court deadlines.
