Illinois Divorce Details

Use DivorceWriter to complete your own Illinois divorce forms. You'll receive all documents you need to get a divorce in Illinois, ready-to-file, with complete filing instructions. Division of property, debts, alimony, name change, and minor children (including parenting time, Illinois child support calculations, and more) are covered in the DivorceWriter interview and documents.

State Residency Requirement

To file for divorce in Illinois, at least one spouse must be a resident of the state (or stationed in-state while a member of the armed services) for at least 90 days before filing.

Grounds for Divorce

While Illinois has several fault grounds for divorce, the vast majority of divorces in the state are filed on no-fault grounds. If you and your spouse have "irreconcilable differences" that have permanently damaged your marriage, you have met the grounds for no-fault divorce in Illinois.

Time to Complete

Uncontested divorces in Illinois are usually finalized 30-60 days after filing.

Types of Divorce in Illinois

Illinois has two divorce options--simplified and standard. Everyone is eligible for a standard divorce, but you have to qualify for a simplified divorce. The cost and time to complete both types are the same. DivorceWriter makes it easy to choose the right divorce type for you, and if you change your mind at any point, you can switch your paperwork at no additional charge.

Child Support

Compared to other states, the standard child support calculation in Illinois is very straight-forward because it's based on a flat percentage of net income.

If you have agreed to a different child support amount than the one calculated under the Illinois Child Support Guidelines, the DivorceWriter interview makes it easy to select your chosen support amount instead.
