For some couples in Illinois, a healthy divorce seems far out of reach. When issues of domestic violence and abuse exist, divorcing is just as challenging as the marriage was. However, in many cases, a healthy divorce is something couples can achieve, especially when it is a goal shared by both spouses.
Teamwork in some form is crucial in achieving as healthy a divorce as possible. Sometimes this teamwork means both spouses working together to make the divorce proceed smoothly. Other times, this teamwork means working together with your attorney to protect your rights if cooperation with your spouse is not possible.
In our many decades of serving residents, we have learned the true value of working together and we want to pass this along to those who may be facing a difficult divorce. Experienced attorneys understand how important it is to encourage cooperation between spouses. At the same time, we also know that such cooperation may be impossible.
Even in situations filled with conflict and hostility, we still believe a healthy divorce may be possible to some degree. Attorneys can facilitate this by serving as a buffer between spouses when the presence of hostility may have a negative effect on the divorce. This helps by putting a safe distance between you and your spouse, enabling you to focus on the tasks associated with divorce instead of fighting with your spouse.
One of the most important things we tell our clients is that by working together, we can create a strong team with many shared goals. One of the most critical of these goals is ensuring that you emerge from divorce with your dignity, your self-esteem and your bright future intact.
