Divorce in Illinois

In 2016, Illinois became a no-fault divorce state, which means "irreconcilable differences" is the only recognized grounds for dissolving a marriage. Either spouse may file for divorce, so if your spouse has done so, you need an attorney as soon as possible to respond to the filing. While you may not be prepared to move forward or may wish to fight the divorce, the best thing you can do is accept it and hire an experienced divorce lawyer who knows how to navigate the legal path toward a secure future.

You can avoid a drawn-out courtroom battle by having your respective attorneys communicate and negotiate in crafting your divorce agreement. Other couples simply cannot work together and must go through full divorce litigation. Whatever route you choose, the Law Office of James A. Podgorny will vigorously advocate for your long-term needs.
