At Arami Law, Inc., we handle many different issues that arise in divorce cases in Evanston, Illinois, including but not limited to the following:
Most legal issues that arise in an Evanston divorce will be governed by the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act (IMDMA). Under the IMDMA, in order to file for divorce, there is no requirement that anyone prove “grounds” for divorce. Rather, Illinois is a “no-fault state,” which means that a court can enter a judgment for divorce (i.e., dissolution of marriage) as long as the following requirements have been met:
How is the no-fault divorce requirement met? According to the IMDMA, there is an irrebuttable presumption that the requirement has been met when the spouses have lived separate and apart for at least six months.
Divorces are generally either contested or uncontested. In an uncontested divorce, the parties have reached an agreement about all aspects of the divorce. With a contested divorce, one or more issues remain in dispute. Uncontested divorces are typically much quicker than uncontested divorces.
Just because a divorce starts out contested does not mean that the parties cannot reach an agreement through negotiation or divorce mediation.
