Filing for Divorce in Mokena and Irreconcilable Differences

 In order to file for divorce in Mokena, you will never need to allege fault. Under the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act (IMDMA), all divorces are no-fault divorces in the state. Accordingly, when you file a petition for the dissolution of marriage, you will only need to allege that your marriage has broken down and is beyond repair. The court must find that no efforts on your part to reconcile would be in your best interests.

When the spouses have lived separate and apart for six months or longer, the IMDMA makes clear that the requirement of irreconcilable differences has been met. To be sure, you will be able to prove irreconcilable differences by living separate and apart from your ex for six months or more before your divorce filing.

Contested Versus Uncontested Divorce in Mokena

Uncontested divorces are those in which the parties agree to all terms of the divorce, while contested divorces are those in which even a single issue remains in dispute. If you want to learn more about obtaining an uncontested divorce and helping your case to move more quickly, a Mokena divorce attorney at our firm can assist you.
