The Divorce Process in Illinois

You may have heard of the term “no-fault divorce.” In Illinois, this simply means that you can apply for a divorce without having to prove that one or the other spouse is at fault. All you have to show is that you have “irreconcilable differences.”

The process usually goes something like this:

  • The judge also needs to find that efforts to fix the marriage have failed (or that these attempts would not be in the best interests of the family).
  • Additionally, in order to file for divorce in Illinois, at least one spouse must be a resident of the state for at least 90 days prior to filing for divorce.
  • There are filing fees for divorce in Illinois, although these fees differ by county.

As long as one spouse meets the residency requirements and grounds for the divorce, they can file and serve their partner with divorce papers.
