What You Should Know About Divorce in DuPage County, Illinois

Are you and your spouse getting ready for a divorce in DuPage County? If so, it is essential that you have a thorough understanding of what to expect from the Illinois divorce process. Here is what you should know if you are getting divorced in Wheaton: 

  • Illinois is a No-Fault Divorce State: You do not need to prove that your spouse did something wrong or improper to justify a divorce in Illinois. The sole grounds for divorce in the state is irreconcilable differences. Most divorces are finalized based on a six month separation. A physical separation is not required. An emotional/spiritual separation is sufficient. 
  • You Must Follow the Residency Rules: Illinois divorces cases are handled at the county level. To file for divorce in DuPage County, either you or your spouse must have resided within the jurisdiction for a minimum of three months (90 days). 
  • Marital Property is Divided Equitably: Illinois is an equitable property division state. In effect, this means that a married couple’s assets will split up in a manner consistent with what is fair to the interests of both parties. Unlike some other jurisdictions, Illinois does not require an even split. 
  • Best Interests of the Child for Decision-Making/Parenting Time: Parents of minor children face some additional challenges in the divorce process. If you are getting divorce in Illinois and you have young children, you and your spouse will be required to come to a parenting plan—otherwise the court will make one. Any dispute over parenting decision making and/or parenting time is resolved by considering the child’s best interests.
