As Illinois is a no-fault divorce state, neither spouse needs to prove that the other did something “wrong” in order to end the marriage. The first step in the divorce process is the filing of a document called a Petition for Dissolution of Marriage. You can file for divorce in Illinois as long as you satisfy the residency requirement—one spouse must have lived in the state for at least 90 days.
In an uncontested divorce case, parties can reach a settlement and file the divorce paperwork collectively. In a contested divorce case, that may not always be possible. Most divorces are settled outside of litigation. Before you can move forward with a divorce settlement, you and your spouse must agree on all material issues, including property division and child custody.
Before your divorce can be finalized in Illinois, there are many different issues that must be resolved.
