Going through a divorce can be challenging, and couples will need to address multiple types of legal and financial issues. Many of the most significant concerns for divorcing spouses will be related to the division of assets and the family home in particular. If you are looking to maintain ownership of your home following a divorce in Illinois, there are several factors to consider. By working with a skilled divorce attorney, you can take steps to protect your interests and resolve financial issues successfully.

Understanding how and when paternity can be established is a crucial concern for both mothers and fathers in Illinois. Establishing paternity may be necessary before issues such as child custody, child support, inheritance rights, and medical care can be addressed. When paternity is established, a legal relationship will be created between the parent and child, ensuring that both of a child’s parents can play an important role in their lives.

At one time, in order to file for divorce, a spouse was required to cite the reason why they wanted to end their marriage. The reason cited was referred to as “fault.” Today, Illinois no longer has this requirement, and all divorces are “no-fault.” In a no-fault divorce system, the only accepted grounds for divorce are irreconcilable differences or the breakdown of the marital relationship. This approach represents a significant shift in the way divorce is handled, aiming to simplify the process, reduce conflict, and promote a more amicable separation.
