Filing for Divorce in Illinois

In Illinois, divorce is referred to as the dissolution of marriage. To file for dissolution of marriage, either you or your spouse must have resided in Illinois for at least 90 days prior to filing. Since Illinois is a no-fault divorce state, you are permitted to file for divorce without needing to prove that your spouse did anything wrong. As long as a couple has been legally separated for two years, either spouse may file for divorce on the grounds of irreconcilable differences. Attesting that a marriage is “irretrievably broken” means the spouses can no longer get along and the relationship cannot be repaired.

Additional grounds for divorce in the state of Illinois include:

  • Adultery
  • Domestic violence
  • Drug or alcohol addiction (2 years)
  • Willful desertion (1 year)
  • Impotency
  • Unexplained absence
  • Venereal disease
  • Conviction of a crime
  • Attempted murder of spouse
  • Undissolved prior marriage

Will My Family Law Case Go to Trial?

While you may be anticipating a distressing visit to the court to settle your divorce or other family legal dispute, in actuality a very small percentage of cases make it to trial. In many situations, divorces are settled through mediation, pre-trial meetings, and settlement conferences. This is the preferred way for many to resolve their legal issues since it is usually faster and more cost-effective. More complicated cases may need shorter contested hearings but will not necessarily require a full trial.

At Quintana Law Group, LLC, we work diligently to settle cases outside of the courtroom when it is in the best interest of our clients. However, if your legal matter requires a trial, we have the knowledge and experience to present a compelling case on your behalf as we seek the outcome you deserve.
