Chicago Divorce Attorneys Serving Illinois

To be eligible to file for divorce in Illinois, the following must be true regarding where you live:

 

  • One of the spouses must be an Illinois resident for a 90-day consecutive period prior to filing for divorce or before the entry of a judgment for divorce (i.e., the end of the divorce); or
  • One of the spouses must be stationed in Illinois as a member of the armed services for 90 days prior to filing for divorce or before the entry of a judgment for divorce.

Something that has changed in recent years is the amount of time required for the parties to live separate and apart. Whereas couples generally needed to live separate and apart for two years before obtaining a judgment for divorce under the old law, now they need only live separate and apart for six months prior to obtaining a judgment for divorce.
