DuPage County Attorneys Experienced with High Conflict Divorce 

Villa Park Cheating Spouse Divorce Attorneys

Lawyers in Elmhurst IL for Contentious Divorce Cases

Divorce is rarely easy, and most cases begin with some degree of anger, bitterness, and conflict between the spouses. As the proceedings get underway and time goes on, however, the strong emotions tend to subside, allowing the couple to gain a level of control over the situation. Often, a couple can even negotiate a settlement without going to trial.

At Wakenight & Associates, P.C., we recognize that in some cases, the conflict between the spouses never subsides. Sometimes, it is just one spouse who refuses to cooperate, while in other situations, both spouses may continue to escalate the tension. If you are in the midst of a high-conflict divorce, our skilled attorneys are ready to help.

Causes of Conflict in a Lombard Divorce

There are many ways that conflict can develop between divorcing spouses. In many cases, tension is created by the behavior of one or both spouses during the marriage or as the marriage is ending. Such destructive behavior may include but is not limited to:

In some situations, however, the divorce proceeding itself might bring out the worst in one or both spouses. A spouse who feels angry or betrayed at the thought of getting a divorce may lash out in unexpected ways, leading to behaviors such as stalking, harassment, or electronic monitoring of the other party. An angry spouse may also try to turn the couple's children against their other parent. He or she may also use social media outlets to badmouth or spread rumors about the other spouse in an effort to gain support from family and mutual friends.
