Steps in a Lincoln Park Divorce Process

What are the steps in a divorce in Lincoln Park? While the steps in a divorce can depend upon particular issues in a specific case, generally speaking, divorce in Illinois can involve:

  • One spouse files a petition for the dissolution of marriage, and the other party has an opportunity to answer;
  • Parties may negotiate a marital settlement agreement;
  • If there is no marital settlement agreement, the court classifies marital and separate property, and divides marital property;
  • One party may seek spousal maintenance, at which point the court determines whether spousal maintenance is appropriate and, if so, the amount and duration of an alimony award;
  • Parents can develop a parenting plan based on the best interests of the child standard, in which they allocate parental responsibilities;
  • When parents cannot develop an agreed-upon parenting plan, the court will allocate parental responsibilities (including significant decision-making responsibilities and parenting time) according to the best interests of the child standard;
  • Court will determine the child support obligation based on the income shares model, in which both parents are responsible for supporting their children; and
  • Court will issue a divorce judgment, which includes all of the legal issues settled during the divorce process.
