If You Were Served With Divorce Papers, Call A Lisle Divorce Attorney

Being served with process is a strange feeling. It is not something that happens often, and many people who are served with court papers feel very uncomfortable with the gravity of what those papers mean to them and their lives. Some people who are served with divorce papers are utterly surprised because they had no idea that their spouse wanted to get divorced. Others are embarrassed about the state of their marriage, and they might act out by being angry or sad. However, setting your emotions aside for just a moment is important since being served with process means that you need to take certain actions in order to protect your rights. If you are served with divorce papers, you should speak with an experienced divorce lawyer right away. The Women’s Divorce & Family Law Group can help.

A Divorce Attorney Can Help You Respond to Your Divorce Papers

It is supremely important that you speak with an experienced divorce attorney once you are served with divorce papers. Having a face-to-face conversation with a divorce lawyer will allow you to get a better understanding of what is about to happen, what you need to do, and what you can do to help make your divorce a smoother process. One important matter is that you must respond to your divorce papers within a certain amount of time. Your lawyer will be able to identify the timeframe in which you need to respond and will be able to help you prepare a response to your divorce papers.

A divorce attorney can help you through this process by:

  • Helping you determine if service of process was proper under 750 ILCS 5/410;
  • Helping you identify the response due date for your divorce papers;
  • Helping you determine if you need a lawyer for the whole divorce, or maybe just certain aspects of your divorce. Not all divorces necessarily require a lawyer, but it is always a good idea to have one;
  • Figuring out how the divorce will likely impact your life in the short and long term and can assist you in determining how a divorce will impact your finances in terms of the likely division of assets, spousal support and child support;
  • Assisting you with evaluating how your divorce could impact your children;
  • Helping you develop legal strategies to get you what you need from your divorce;
  • Preparing your response to your divorce papers; and
  • Serving your response to the divorce papers on your ex spouse and filing them with the court.
