Illinois Attorneys Experienced In Contentious Divorces
Ending a marriage is rarely an easy process. Almost all divorce cases start with at least some level of bitterness, anger, and hurt feelings between the spouses. As time goes by and the proceedings start moving, such emotions can subside. In some situations, the couple is able to regain their composure and work together in pursuit of a settlement without the need for a trial. Sometimes, however, this is simply not possible.
At Botti Marinaccio, LTD., our experienced attorneys know that, in some cases, the contentiousness between divorcing spouses does not subside. In addition to the couples differences, parenting time and child support issues often lead to friction and escalation of conflict. When tensions are high, you want an experienced, calming presence to get things sorted out with the least amount of stress possible.

Addressing The Causes Of Conflict In Divorce
Conflict between spouses can develop in a variety of ways. Differences between divorcing spouses have typically built up over a long period of time and have caused deep wounds. Examples of behaviors that could cause contentiousness in a divorce include:
- Infidelity or adultery by one or both spouses;
- Dissipation or reckless spending of marital assets;
- Domestic abuse and violence;
- Mental health concerns; and
- Substance abuse and addiction to alcohol, drugs, gambling, or sex.
The divorce process itself can bring out the worst in divorcing spouses. For example, a spouse who is angry or feels betrayed by the divorce filing might act out in unpredictable ways. Additionally, divorce cases sometimes become complicated due to harassing, stalking. or attempts to monitor a spouse electronically. An enraged spouse might also attempt to influence the children to side with one parent over the other. It is also not uncommon for a spouse to use social media platforms to spread rumors or talk badly about the other spouse to garner support from friends and family. Any of these behaviors can cause the divorce process to drag on for much longer than necessary. It is important to have a skilled attorney who can keep focused on the legal aspects of the divorce and not let highly emotional situations cause needless delays.
