Yorkville Uncontested Divorce Attorney-Flat Fee Attorneys

Divorce is a difficult time and resolving your divorce in a cost-effective manner is a wise

way. Uncontested divorce means that the spouses can negotiate and resolve their major

differences in an amicable way.

Why Hire a Non-Divorce Litigator in Yorkville and Kendall County?

Divorce lawyers are litigators who excel at arguing. Transactional lawyers are the opposite of

litigators because we promote compromise and win-win compromises. Win-win compromises

result in compromises where both parties win (and lose on some issues).

Unlike a litigator, a non-divorce attorney does not want complex cases, which do not produce

compromise. Litigators want to bill hours and run-up legal bills. Here at Gateville Law Firm, we

produce the following benefits:

 Resolve your divorce in approximately 30-days

 Develop a win-win compromise, which produces similar results to long-fought divorce

cases. These divorce cases often result in similar outcomes to the initial predictions

 Hire an experienced former family and divorce lawyer that will anticipate with a

reasonable degree of certainty how the court would handle your divorce or custody


 Pay a fixed legal fee, which will not produce a bankruptcy filing or a foreclosure

 Address real estate issues with a law firm, which has a strong real estate and financial


 Minimize your issues and in case of a dispute, go in front of a Judge with one or two

issues at most (while resolving the other major issues)

 No years of counseling and therapy to resolve the deep conflict involved in a divorce or

custody proceedings

 No judgments against you for legal fees filed by your attorney

of marriage cases. Most divorce cases involve middle-class families that do not have the means
