Filing for Divorce in Burr Ridge, IL

If you want to be the party who files a petition for divorce in Burr Ridge, also known as a petition for the dissolution of marriage, you should know that Illinois law does not recognize any fault-based reasons for a divorce. Instead, the party who files a petition for the dissolution of marriage simply must plead “no-fault grounds” for divorce in order for the divorce case to move forward.

How does a party make clear that they want to move forward with a no-fault divorce in Illinois? Since no-fault divorce states do not actually have “grounds” for divorce (as fault-based states do), the party who is filing the petition only must plead that the marriage has come to an end because of irreconcilable differences between the spouses. Then, based on the case presented, the court must determine that the spouses have no hopes of reconciling in the future.
