You or your spouse must meet the Illinois residency requirements for the Circuit Court to have jurisdiction of your case. The requirements before filing your Petition for Dissolution of Marriage (the document that initiates your divorce) are as follows:
One of the spouses must be a resident of this State or stationed in the State as a member of the armed services, and the residence or military presence must be 90 days prior to filing. The proceedings shall be filed in the county where the plaintiff or defendant resides.
In order to use this service, you and your spouse must agree (or eventually agree) on getting the divorce. Your spouse's participation is minimal, being he or she will only have to sign a few documents and return them to you for filing with the court.
The most common "uncontested" grounds for divorce in Illinois are:
1. That the spouses have lived separate and apart for a continuous period in excess of 2 years and irreconcilable differences have caused the irretrievable breakdown of the marriage and the court determines that efforts at reconciliation have failed or that future attempts at reconciliation would be impracticable and not in the best interests of the family.
2. The spouses have lived separate and apart for a continuous period of not less than 6 months next preceding the entry of the judgment dissolving the marriage, as evidenced by testimony or affidavits of the spouses, the requirement of living separate and apart for a continuous period in excess of 2 years may be waived upon written stipulation of both spouses filed with the court.
All of your documents will be current according to Illinois statutes and will address over 100 issues. A few of these issues are; assets, property, current debts, future debts, insurances, retirement and pension accounts, spousal support/alimony, real estate, small businesses, tax filings, name changes, and professional fees.
