An Overview of Divorce in Illinois

Divorce is far from rare, and tens of thousands of married couples split in Illinois each year. Of course, that knowledge does not make it any easier to end a marriage. You need to know your rights, responsibilities, and how divorce works in Illinois. Here are five key things to understand if you are preparing for a divorce in Palos Hills: 

  • Every Divorce is a No-Fault Divorce: Fault-based divorces are no longer allowed in Illinois. Every divorce in Illinois is now a no-fault divorce. 
  • A 90-Day Residency Requirement to File: You should file for divorce in the proper county court. At least one spouse must be an Illinois resident for a minimum of 90 days. 
  • Divorce May be Contested or Uncontested: There are two categories of divorce. A contested divorce is one that goes to litigation. An uncontested divorce is one that is settled. Most divorces are (eventually) uncontested divorces. 
  • Your Marital Property is Divided Equitably: Illinois is an equitable distribution state for marital property. Your marital property will be split “fairly”—which might not be 50/50. 
  • Child Custody Falls Under the Best Interests of the Child Standard: If you have kids under 18, custody and visitation (allocation of parental rights, responsibilities, and parenting time) will be an issue in your divorce. Any dispute about custody falls under the Illinois best interests of the child standard.
