The initial steps of any divorce can be confusing and emotionally fraught. Having a better understanding of how the divorce process works can help to ease your mind as you begin working with a divorce attorney on your case. Generally speaking, the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act (IMDMA) will govern almost all legal matters pertaining to your divorce.
Under Illinois law, in order to file for divorce in Cook County, one of the spouses will file a petition for the dissolution of marriage. In the next step, the other spouse will be served with papers, and the divorce process will move forward.
For some couples, the divorce process is relatively straightforward. For example, a couple might have been married for only a very short period of time, meaning that there is limited marital property that must be divided and no children from the marriage. Even for some couples in long-term marriages, the divorce process is straightforward because the parties have come to an agreement about all terms of the divorce—from property division through child support and the allocation of parental responsibilities—and they can move forward with an uncontested divorce. For other couples, however, the divorce process can be contentious, anxiety-inducing, and lengthy. You should not have to handle this complicated process on your own when an experienced divorce attorney can assist you.
