No-Fault Divorce in Tinley Park

Illinois is a “no-fault” divorce state, which means that neither spouse needs to prove grounds for divorce. Rather, under the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act (IMDMA), the no-fault requirement is: “Irreconcilable differences have caused the irretrievable breakdown of the marriage, and the court determines that efforts at reconciliation have failed or that future attempts at reconciliation would be impracticable and not in the best interests of the family.” When the parties have lived separate and apart for at least six months, then “there is an irrebuttable presumption that the requirement of irreconcilable differences has been met.”


Contested Versus Uncontested Divorce in Tinley Park

Divorces in Tinley Park can be contested or uncontested. In an uncontested divorce, the parties have reached an agreement about any disputes, including the division of marital property, maintenance, and child custody and support issues if they share minor children. In a contested divorce, one or more issues remain in dispute, and the parties will need to go before a judge who will decide the issues. 

Since uncontested divorces do not require a judge to rule on issues in dispute, they tend to be faster and more cost-effective. You may be able to move from a contested to an uncontested divorce by going through divorce meditation or seeking alternative methods to resolve any disputes.
