Orland Park No-Fault Divorce

Under the IMDMA, all divorces in Illinois are no-fault divorces. Accordingly, you should never plan to raise fault-based grounds for divorce, and you should know that the court will not consider fault-based grounds to grant a divorce. Instead, you will only need to plead no-fault grounds for divorce, or that irreconcilable differences have caused the breakdown of your marriage. You will also have to show that trying to reconcile would not be in anyone’s best interest.

When the spouses have lived separate and apart for a continuous period of six months or longer, then there is an irrebuttable presumption that the no-fault requirement of “irreconcilable differences” has been met, according to the IMDMA.

Orland Park Allocation of Parental Responsibilities

When spouses are getting divorced and have minor children from the marriage, the divorce case will need to include child custody. It is important to know that Illinois courts no longer award child custody but instead allocated parental responsibilities under Illinois law. There are two types of parental responsibilities:

  • Significant decision-making responsibilities (similar to legal custody); and
  • Parenting time (similar to physical custody and visitation).
