An Overview of Divorce in Illinois

If you are preparing to end your marriage, it is crucial that you know your rights and duties under the relevant law in your local area. For the most part, divorce cases fall under state law. Some key things to know about divorce in Illinois are as follows: 

  • No Fault: Fault-based divorce no longer exists in Illinois. Under state law, all divorces are now finalized on the no-fault grounds of irreconcilable differences. The court does not assign “blame” for the breakdown of a marriage. 
  • 90 Days of Residency: You can file for divorce in Illinois regardless of where you originally got married. However, you or your spouse must have lived in the county that you are filing in for at least 90 days. If you do not meet the residency requirement, you cannot file for divorce in Illinois. 
  • Uncontested or Contested: A divorce may be uncontested or contested in Illinois. An uncontested divorce is essentially a “settled’ divorce. The couple reaches their own out-of-court agreement. The contrast is a contested divorce, which requires an Illinois court to weigh in on one or more key matters.
