Illinois No-Fault Divorce in Oak Brook
The Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act (IMDMA) only allows spouses to go through a no-fault divorce. Accordingly, you should not plan to allege grounds for divorce. Instead, the IMDMA only requires a finding that irreconcilable differences exist between the couple. The court has to deem those differences are such that no attempts to overcome them would work out or be in anyone’s best interests.
When the parties have been living separate and apart for at least six months before the divorce filing, then there is an irrebuttable presumption that the “irreconcilable differences” requirement has been met.
Oak Brook Equitable Distribution of Marital Property
In Oak Brook divorces, all property is classified as marital or separate property, and all marital property is divided between the spouses based on the theory of equitable distribution. The court will consider a variety of factors to determine what kind of division of marital property is fair or equitable to both spouses.
Only marital property is divided in a divorce. Separate property typically includes assets and debts acquired before the marriage, and property acquired after the marriage through an inheritance or a gift.
