Making the decision to get a divorce can be one of the most important and emotional decisions you will ever make. The process is often more difficult and more emotionally charged when children are involved. An experienced family law attorney from our firm can help you approach the emotional, financial, and legal matters involved in a divorce in a rational manner. In Illinois, you do not have to prove someone is at fault to get a divorce. In a no-fault divorce, either spouse can obtain a divorce without proving the other spouse did something wrong, even if the other spouse does not consent to the divorce.

Previously in Illinois, you could also allege grounds, or fault, to obtain a divorce. Some of the more common reasons for obtaining a fault-based divorce included adultery, mental illness, mental cruelty, and abandonment. Recent law changes, however, have eliminated fault-based divorce as an available option. Since 2016, all divorces are granted on the no-fault grounds of irreconcilable differences. Regardless of the reason for the end of a marriage, there are certain legal aspects that must be dealt with. These are alimony, spousal support and maintenance, division of property, and others. We're committed to advocating on your behalf so that you receive what is entitled to you.

Attorneys are not usually high on the scale of likeability; however, Joshua Bedwell does not fall in to this category. During my lengthy divorce (through no fault of his), I could always depend on Joshua's expertise, dedication, reliability and professionalism as well as always keeping me updated and informed with the details of my case. He always explained to me the risks/rewards of different strategies. His organizational skills are outstanding. This was one of the most difficult and trying times of my life and even though I became very frustrated at times during this period, Joshua always maintained a professional and courteous demeanor. He was always very straightforward with me and while I didn't always like his straightforward comments and advice, his knowledge of divorce law is exceptional and he was always looking out for my best interests at all times. I highly recommend Joshua.

- L. Schaefer

I worked with Joshua Bedwell on a post-decree matter seeking payment of support obligations which were owed to me pursuant to the Divorce Agreement. It was a lengthy and often frustrating process which was improved only by way of Joshua's candor and expertise. He was effective dealing with opposing counsel and I felt my interests were well represented. It was reassuring to work with someone who explained the risk / reward analysis every step of the way. There are so many decisions made during any legal process and Joshua's strategy and thoughtfulness was critical to reaching a successful outcome. Highly recommend Mr. Bedwell and MKFM
