Glenview No-Fault Divorce and Irreconcilable Differences
Illinois is a no-fault state when it comes to divorce. Accordingly, under the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act (IMDMA), you do not need to prove fault to get divorced, and there is no opportunity to allege fault. Instead, the court only must find that “irreconcilable differences have caused the irretrievable breakdown of the marriage.”
Division of Marital Property and Equitable Distribution in Glenview
Under Illinois law, all marital property will be divided between the spouses according to “equitable distribution.” In equitable distribution states like Illinois, marital property is not divided in an equal or 50/50 manner between the spouses automatically (although a 50/50 split might ultimately be what an equitable distribution of the marital assets and debts looks like). Instead, the court will consider many different factors that are specific to your circumstances in order to decide what kind of division would be fair to both spouses. In general, the process of property division looks like this:
- Spouses disclose all assets and debts, including those acquired prior to the marriage;
- Court will classify all property as separate property or marital property, and marital property will need to be divided;
- Marital assets and debts will be valued so that the division of property will be equitable to both spouses;
- Court will consider a number of different factors outlined in the IMDMA to divide property equitably, including factors like the age and health of the parties, the standard of living established during the marriage, a stay-at-home spouse’s contribution to the household or to raising children, and related factors.
