Can I get divorced in a weekend in Illinois?

Jan 15, 2014 | Divorce

“The Weekend Divorce” according to the two attorneys requires booking a hotel conference room for two days and negotiating every detail of the divorce in those two days. Then before the couple leaves all documents are signed and ready to be entered by the court.

An important part of the success of “The Weekend Divorce” is that each party furnishes to the opposing party’s attorney ten days before the negotiation weekend all financial information. The financial information includes tax returns, pay stubs, bank account statements, life insurance policies, mortgage documents, auto loan information, real estate appraisals, pension and retirement account information, and more.

“The Weekend Divorce” uses the collaborative divorce model which requires the parties’ agreement to work together respectfully, honestly, and in good faith.

While the idea of getting divorced in a weekend may sound like the perfect solution to every divorce both of the attorneys who created the idea admit “The Weekend Divorce” would not work for every divorce.
