Hello and welcome.
My name is XXXXX XXXXX my goal is to provide you with excellent service today. I am sorry to hear of your difficult situation. Before I can give you an accurate answer to your question, please provide the following additional information:
In which county do you reside?
I look forward to assisting you as soon as I have received this information. Thank you.
I see. Thank you for clarifying that, Charvonna.Here is a link to the court's website which provides the forms you would normally need to file to initiate the divorce proceedings:http://www.cookcountycourt.org/ABOUTTHECOURT/CountyDepartment/DomesticRelationsDivision/ForPeopleWithoutLawyers/FilingandAnsweringaDivorcePetition.aspxThere is a filing fee, but you would save attorney's fees typically. If your spouse does not respond to the petition, then the court will normally grant whatever relief you have requested in your petition, which should include a request for child support as well as a division of marital assets and alimony if appropriate.
I hope this helps clarify the situation for you. Please remember to rate my service once you have all the information you need so I will be compensated for my time from the deposit you posted with this website. If you have any other questions, please ask me – I’ll be happy to respond. Thank you!
Thank you very much for your positive rating of my service. It has been my pleasure to assist you and I hope you will ask for me should a future legal need arise.
If you receive a Customer Satisfaction Survey from JustAnswer, please consider scoring me a 9 or 10. It benefits my ability to assist you and other customers, and would be tremendously appreciated.
Thanks again and all the best to you.
