I’m Dave Wolkowitz, an uncontested divorce lawyer in Skokie. I don’t like to mess around, so I offer a flat fee for an uncontested divorce.
Flat Fee for cases by agreement – with a Skokie divorce lawyer
When both spouses are in agreement on all issues, AND will also cooperate to sign all the necessary documents, we call that an “uncontested divorce in Illinois.”
We offer a flat fee, so starting and finishing a divorce can be fast, and affordable, in Skokie. After a short call, we can quote you a flat fee. See this article about our flat fee uncontested divorce.
We have an office in Skokie (check it out at the map below).
But you don’t really have to waste time meeting us in person – we can handle everything via the phone and Internet (Zoom, email, calls, etc).
An uncontested divorce in Skokie – in our opinion – is about getting to the point, and not wasting time. You can check out other lawyers who publish a bunch of drivel about their “philosophy” and and how they treat each case in a “unique” manner, but that’s just marketing filler.

Go to court in Skokie, or the Daley Center (and maybe on Zoom)
If you live in Skokie, then you can choose to go to court in either the Skokie courthouse (off of Old Orchard), or downtown at the Daley Center. Also, many judges will handle an uncontested divorce in Zoom – so you might not have to physically go to court at all.
Below is a map to the Skokie courthouse, known as District 2 of the Circuit Court of Cook County:

You might think that if you live in Skokie, it is obvious that you should start your uncontested divorce in Skokie. But that is not necessarily the case. Your Skokie uncontested divorce lawyer can give input, but here are a few factors to consider:
Online or not: Some judges might handle court online, on Zoom, and some won’t.
Where you work: If you live in Skokie but work downtown near the Loop, it might actually be more convenient to go to court at the Daley Center
Ease of getting a court date: Generally speaking, there is one court date required for an uncontested divorce. But did you know there is online one divorce judge at the Skokie courthouse? That can make it hard to get a court date in Skokie, and can delay the finalization of your case.
