My name is David Wolkowiz, and I’m an Illinois divorce attorney and Chicago divorce lawyer. I offer my services in an uncontested divorce without children for a flat fee of $1,500. Uncontested divorces with kids have a different fee. My flat fee retainer agreement spells out all the terms of retaining me for a flat fee uncontested divorce in Illinois.
An uncontested divorce is one in which the spouses agree to everything – agreeing to get divorce, division of property, the kids, all that. To become a bit more familiar with what an uncontested divorce entails, you might want to view my posts “What is an Uncontested Divorce in Illinois?” and “Phases of an Uncontested Divorce in Illinois.”
An uncontested divorce in Illinois offers these benefits compared to contested divorces (with fighting):
- Less stressful
- Less time in court – once, most likely.
- Less expensive (no fighting = paying lawyers less)
My services include legal advice and counseling you – I am not just a document preparation service. You will talk to me, a real lawyer, and I will appear in court with you. The $999 does not include the filing fees or process server fees (if your spouse just accepts service from you, you don’t have to pay for it to be served).
I can also handle contested cases where people disagree, but I hope for your sake that an uncontested divorce is an option for you.
Thank you for your time.
