Illinois Divorce Overview


In order to file for divorce in the State of Illinois, the filing spouse must have resided in the state for at least 90 days.


Effective 2016, the only ground for divorce in Illinois, is irreconcilable differences with the parties having lived separate and apart for a period of 6 months or longer.


In the State of Illinois, the parties may agree to either joint or sole legal and physical custody of their children. Legal custody gives a parent the right to participate in decision-making involving the children. The court may award either joint or sole legal custody in a contested dissolution. The court will also determine physical custody arrangements.

The court shall determine custody in accordance with the best interests of the child, keeping the wishes of the child’s parent and the child in mind. The court also takes into consideration the bond between the parent, child and any siblings, as well as the child’s adjustment to home and school, and the mental and physical health of all parties involved.


Illinois’ child support guidelines apply in virtually every case, unless special circumstances are present. Both parties gross incomes and certain child related expenses are taken into consideration when calculating child support. Child support will continue until the child reaches eighteen years of age, or until the child graduates from high school, whichever occurs later, and may be extended through secondary education.


The divorce should be filed in the county where either the petitioner or the respondent resides.


Mediation is strongly encouraged in the State of Illinois.


Court filing fees are in addition to the cost of using it's over easy. This cost may vary by county. Please check with your local courthouse to determine the exact amount.
