Uncontested Divorce Process in Illinois
There is no waiting period for an uncontested divorce in Illinois as long as at least one of the parties meet Illinois’ residency requirement: living in Illinois for at least 90 days before filing for divorce.
Here’s how it works:
You’ll need to file all the necessary legal paperwork.
You and your spouse need to come to an agreement on all issues.
Draft a divorce settlement agreement that resolves issues related to marital property, debt, spousal support and, if children are involved, a parenting agreement.
Hearing in court in front of the judge with one or both of you present, or in the alternative filing affidavits instead of going to court.
Final court order (judgment for dissolution of marriage).
We know that divorce and child custody issues can be overwhelming -- sometimes you don’t know where to start and it can be hard to see a path forward.
