Grounds for Divorce in Illinois

Illinois is a no-fault divorce state. In order to file for a divorce, you and your spouse must be experiencing “irreconcilable differences.” In addition, one of you must have lived in Illinois for 90 days or more before initiating your divorce proceedings. The court also requires that a couple live “separate and apart” for a period of six months prior to filing for divorce. However, this waiting period, intended to give the couple time to reconsider their decision, can be waived by a written agreement between the spouses

How to File for Divorce in Cook, McHenry, DuPage, & Lake Counties

If you meet the requirements for divorce in Illinois, you can proceed with completing all the necessary steps to legally end your marriage.

Filing for divorce involves several actions, including:

  • Gathering information to fill out the appropriate divorce forms

  • Submitting a petition for dissolution of marriage to your county court

  • Serving your spouse copies of the documents you have submitted to the court

  • Disclosing your financial information to the court

  • Attending a court hearing to receive a finalized divorce order

If you and your spouse cannot agree on one or more issues pertaining to your divorce, your divorce will be considered a “contested divorce.” The court may order you to seek an agreed settlement through divorce mediation. If this process is unsuccessful, the case will need to go to trial so that a judge can decide on issues for you.
