Will you be representing one or both of us in an uncontested divorce?

An attorney can only represent one party in a divorce, even if the divorce is uncontested. Therefore, we can only represent one spouse and cannot give the other (unrepresented) spouse legal advice. The settlement paperwork we prepare will list all assets, property and debts of the parties, will show how the assets and liabilities are being divided in the divorce, and the financial obligations of each spouse, such as child support and maintenance, if applicable. The other spouse may, but is not required to, retain a lawyer to review the settlement paperwork, if he or she wishes.

Uncontested divorce lawyer Denise Erlich is passionate about helping divorcing couples in the greater Chicagoland area transition to their new life as seamlessly as possible. Ms. Erlich patiently guides her clients through every step of the divorce process and provides clients with candid advice about their case and legal options, so they can make informed decisions about their future.
