The ISBA Discusses "No-Fault" Divorces

Question: When can “no-fault” be used as grounds in a divorce? Answer: In Illinois, the no-fault grounds for divorce are based on the couple living separate and apart for a period of time, which is six months for couples who agree on the divorce, but two years for couples where only one member seeks the divorce. To file for a no-fault divorce in Illinois, at least one spouse has to have resided here for at least 90 days.   For more information about Illinois law, visit www.illinoislawyerfinder.com.
