Going through the breakup of a marriage and getting a divorce is one of the most difficult life experiences you can face. Even in otherwise amicable situations, complex issues related to property, assets, and children must be resolved.

Under the Illinois Compiled Statutes, proceedings for a dissolution of marriage, otherwise known as divorce, are initiated when one of the parties involved files a divorce petition with the court, alleging certain facts in the case. A divorce may be granted on the basis of fault grounds, such as adultery, habitual drunkenness, desertion, or domestic abuse, or you may request a ‘no-fault divorce’ based on irreconcilable differences between you and your spouse.
A fault-based divorce case generally takes longer and requires more attorney involvement, particularly if there are significant amounts of property and assets involved. However, important issues must be resolved in even an uncontested divorce case before a final order can be issued. It is vital for you to realize that agreements made regarding these issues that are included in any divorce settlements have the potential to impact you for years to come.
