Divorce in Illinois

If you are contemplating obtaining a divorce in the state of Illinois, you have several options available to you:

  • An Uncontested Divorce: When there is agreement on most-all terms, you may want to pursue an uncontested divorce. However, having an experienced family law attorney by your side is still crucial, as there are additional, more complex issues that will come up where there will be disagreement, such as if a foreclosure or mortgage is involved, or a pension, etc.;
  • A Contested Divorce: When couples are in disagreement on crucial details such as how to divide assets, split parenting time, etc., the divorce can be contested. There may also be complex business issues involved and/or debt, commingled assets, complex marital assets, etc.;
  • Joint Simplified Dissolution: This option is available under specific circumstances, such as when both parties do not have any interest in real property, make less than a certain amount each year, have been married for less than eight years total, etc.

The law also allows you to file for a fault or no fault-based divorce. Those established grounds for divorce include:

  • Irreconcilable differences: presumed if the parties have been living separate and apart for a continuous period of no less than six months immediately preceding the marriage dissolution;
  • Impotence;
  • Bigamy;
  • Adultery;
  • Abandonment (for at least one year);
  • Alcohol or drug addiction (for at least two years);
  • Attempted murder of the other spouse;
  • Extreme, repeated physical and/or mental cruelty;
  • A felony (or similar) conviction; and/or
  • One spouse infected the other with a sexually transmitted disease.
