What to Know About Divorce in Illinois

If you are getting divorced in Palos Heights, it is crucial that you know your rights, duties, and that you understand the law. Divorces are governed by state law. Here are four key things to understand about the divorce laws in Illinois: 

  • The State Only Allows No-Fault Divorce: Illinois no longer allows for a fault-based divorce. All divorces are now finalized under the state’s no-fault law. Couples can get divorced for irreconcilable differences. 
  • You Must Meet a 90-Day Residency Requirement: To file for divorce in Cook County, you or your spouse must have lived in Palos Heights (or another part of the county) for at least three months. There is a 90-day residency requirement. To be clear, you do not have to have gotten married in Illinois to file for divorce in our state. 
  • Your Marital Property Will Be Split “Fairly”: Illinois has an equitable distribution standard in place for the division of a divorcing couple’s marital property. A 50/50 split is not guaranteed under the law. Instead, a couple’s jointly held property/assets will be divided fairly given the circumstances. 
  • Parents Rights are Determined Based on Child’s Best Interests: If you are getting divorced and you have young children in Palos Heights, it is crucial that you are aware of the state’s best interests of the child standard. Parental responsibilities and parenting time (custody and visitation) will be divided in a manner that is best for the child.
