No-Fault Divorce in Orland Park, Illinois 

Under Illinois law, all divorces in the state are no-fault divorces. What this means is that you should not plan to allege any grounds for divorce, and the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act (IMDMA) does not actually recognize fault-based grounds for divorce any longer. Instead, in order to move forward with your divorce, you will need to plead that irreconcilable differences have caused your marriage to break down, and that the current state of your marriage is beyond repair.   

You might be wondering how the court ultimately determines that efforts at reconciliation have failed. This requirement is actually quite easy for you to meet. When the spouses have lived separate and apart for six months or more prior to the divorce filing, the IMDMA says the court assumes that you have met the requirements to prove that irreconcilable differences exist in your marriage. 

Orland Park Contested Versus Uncontested Divorce

Divorces in Orland Park can be uncontested or contested. An uncontested divorce is one in which both spouses have come to an agreement about all issues in the divorce, including the division of marital property and any matters pertaining to support and child custody if there are minor children from the marriage. A contested divorce is one in which the parties disagree about one or more issues. Those disputed issues can be negotiated through divorce mediation, and it may still be possible to have an uncontested divorce.

Generally speaking, uncontested divorces tend to take less time and to cost less money than contested divorces since contested divorces require a judge to decide any issues in dispute.

Minor Children from the Marriage and Orland Park Divorces

In any divorce involving minor children from the marriage, your divorce will also involve the allocation of parental responsibilities, which include:

  • Significant decision-making responsibilities; and
  • Parenting time.
