Divorce in Chicago, Illinois

Chicago might have one of the lowest divorce rates for metropolitan cities in the United States, but divorce still does happen in the Windy City. According to the Centers for Disease Control National Center for Public Health Statistics, the divorce rate for Chicago has been hovering around 7.4% for the past few years.

Despite the low rate of divorce, Chicago is home to one of the most innovative divorce law firms in the United States. Specializing in what they call “Civilized Divorce”, the law office of Kulerski and Cornelison offer more affordable and non-confrontational divorce proceedings.

How is the Law Firm of Kulerski and Cornelison different than other firms?

Most firms want to charge you an arm and a leg to do preparations for expensive and lengthy courtroom litigation. The fact is, however, that the vast majority of divorce proceedings never make it to court. Less than ten percent actually require courtroom litigation, but instead are settled before it ever goes that far.

Most firms don’t want you to have this information. Instead, they want to charge you for hours and hours of work prepping you for something you will likely never have to deal with.

At the Law Office of Kulerski and Cornelison, finding a way to quickly and quietly come to a divorce settlement, without ever prepping for the courtroom, is their only goal. They don’t want to charge you for something you will never see, saving you a lot of money, time, and trouble.

What are my options for divorce in Chicago?

With Kulerski and Cornelison by your side, you have options other than prepping for litigation. There are four kinds of divorce available to you:

Mediation is a popular method of determining a settlement between parties with the aid of a trained mediator.

Litigation should always be thought of as a very last resort. Not only are they extremely expensive, but they take forever. Worst of all, you have to have a judge that doesn’t know you or much about your circumstances make a decision about your life. No one should want their case to go to litigation, but instead you should do everything in your power to settle your divorce peacefully.

Chicago is lucky enough to have the attorneys at Civilized Divorce behind them. The concepts of “Collaborative” and “Cooperative” divorce are innovative ideas that can and will help you achieve your divorce settlement without all of the hassle and expense of a typical divorce.

What is Cooperative Divorce?

A Cooperative Divorce is a means of achieving your divorce settlement in a non-confrontational and cooperative manner. In a cooperative divorce, spouses sit down with each other and their attorneys and work out a mutually beneficial settlement.

What is Collaborative Divorce?

A Collaborative Divorce is very much like a cooperative divorce, but it takes it one step further and requires that both parties sign a contract that they will not take the case to court. It is a revolutionary means of avoiding a costly litigation.
