What Uncontested Divorce in Chicago Means

By Chicago Divorce Attorney Patrick Markey, P.C.

There are two ways for your divorce to be truly uncontested. First, if you and your spouse unquestionably agree and have no disputes on how you are going to deal with all of the issues discussed above, then getting divorced should be fairly painless and quick. You also may qualify for flat fee instead of an hourly rate. The second way your case could be uncontested is if you cannot locate your spouse after a diligent search or if they reside out of state or the country and cannot be personally served with divorce petition (after unsuccessfully attempting to do so). This also can be done for a flat fee.
