    Q How long will it take for my divorce to be final?

    Divorce is a difficult and emotional process. It is not unusual for a couple to change their mind concerning a divorce after the case is filed. If you do decide to reconcile, even on a “temporary” basis, you can do so without dismissing the divorce case. Alternatively, you can dismiss the divorce case and re-file it later if necessary.

    Q What happens if my spouse and I reconcile after filing for divorce?

    Since every situation is unique, it is impossible to predict exactly how much your divorce will cost. An uncontested divorce will cost much less because it requires fewer court appearances and less attorney time. It also follows that the more issues you contest in your divorce, the more expensive it will be. Attorneys charge by the hour for the time they spend working on your case, whether it is in court, preparing pleadings or motions, or answering your questions by phone or email. Most attorneys require a retainer at the outset of the representation, which is held in an escrow account. You are then billed monthly for the work performed on your case. Any monies left on retainer at the conclusion of your matter shall be returned to you.

    Q How much will my divorce cost?

    Generally, both parties are responsible for their own fees. However, Sections 503 and 508 of the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act (IMDMA) permit either spouse to request contribution for attorney’s fees from the other spouse. In determining whether to grant a request for contribution, the court considers the relative financial positions of both spouses after the court has made an allocation of the couple’s property and determined whether to award maintenance. To prevail on a request for contribution, it is not necessary to be destitute. When payment of fees would strip a spouse of his or her means of support or undermine their economic stability, contribution is appropriate, provided the other spouse has the financial means to contribute. Contribution petitions are typically granted when there is a significant income disparity between the parties.

    Requests for contribution to attorney’s fees need to be distinguished from a request for interim attorney’s fees made pursuant to Section 501 of the IMDMA. Either spouse may request funds for the payment of interim attorney’s fees while their case is pending. Requests for interim attorney’s fees are often necessary when one spouse lacks access to the parties’ marital bank accounts.
