Divorce Attorney - Lake County, IL
The litigation process starts when one spouse files a Petition for Dissolution of Marriage in the appropriate county courthouse. This is followed by "discovery,” where financial documents are requested and exchanged, and written questions are asked and answered in writing regarding the assets and liabilities of the marriage. If there are minor children involved, an Allocation Judgment and Parenting Plan must also be prepared and signed by both parties and submitted to the court. Sometimes during the divorce process, a party feels the need to file a petition seeking emergency or temporary relief. A small percentage of cases end up going to trial.
