An Overview of Divorce in Illinois

Divorce is far from rare. There are tens of thousands of divorce petitions filed in Illinois each year—and somewhere between 40% and 50% of all marriages end in divorce. Yet, the process can still be deeply challenging for the people who have to go through it. Knowledge is power. Here are some of the most important things to keep in mind about divorce in Illinois: 

  • Jurisdiction (Residency Requirement): You can get divorced in Cook County, Illinois no matter where you originally got married. To file for a divorce in Oak Park, you merely need to satisfy the state’s 90-day residency requirement. 
  • No-Fault Grounds (Irreconcilable Difference): The divorce process in Illinois is future-focused—it is not about assigning any sort of official “blame” for the breakdown of the relationship. Indeed, all divorces in Illinois are now no-fault divorces. Your Illinois divorce will be based on the grounds of irreconcilable differences. 
  • Equitable Distribution of Assets: Through the formal divorce process, a married couple needs to split up property, assets, and liabilities. Illinois handles these issues under the equitable distribution legal standard. The law states that each spouse is entitled to their “fair”  share of the assets. Many different factors can be considered in evaluating what is fair. The law does not require a 50/50 division of marital property.
