How Do I File for Divorce in Hinsdale?
In order to file for divorce in Hinsdale, the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act (IMDMA) requires one of the spouses to file a petition for the dissolution of marriage. Under Illinois law, Illinois is a no-fault state when it comes to divorce. Accordingly, neither spouse is required to prove “fault” in order to be granted a divorce, and the court in fact will not take fault into account at all when determining whether to grant a divorce.
Instead, the petitioning party will need to meet the no-fault requirements under Illinois law, which means that they need to claim that irreconcilable differences exist such that the marriage is over and there is no possibility that the spouses will reconcile. Once the parties have lived separate and apart for six months, Illinois law says that is sufficient to prove the existence of irreconcilable differences.
Uncontested Versus Contested Divorce in Hinsdale
If you are in the process of getting divorce or you are considering the possibility of filing for divorce, you will want to learn more about the distinction between uncontested and contested divorce in Illinois.
When you file for divorce in Hinsdale, you will not need to choose between an uncontested and a contested divorce. Instead, these are terms that refer to the state of agreement between you and your spouse, and whether the judge will need to determine any issues in dispute. With an uncontested divorce, you and your spouse have reached an agreement about every issue that could be in dispute: division of marital property, spousal maintenance, child support, and the allocation of parental responsibilities. As soon as you cannot agree about even a single issue, then you will have a contested divorce, and the judge will need to rule on the issue. Uncontested divorces typically are much quicker than contested divorces, but our Hinsdale divorce lawyers are here to help you in either type of divorce case.
