Grounds For Divorce

Libertyville Divorce Lawyer

Lake County Family Law Attorney

Effective January 1, 2016, Illinois is now a pure no-fault state. The only available ground for dissolution of marriage in Illinois after January 1, 2016, is that of irreconcilable differences. Illinois has eliminated the prior two-year separation period.

At The Law Office of Cynthia L. Lazar I can help you understand the grounds for divorce that are available in the state of Illinois. I have more than 20 years of experience as a Libertyville divorce attorney handling divorce cases.

I will work with you to understand your individual circumstances and the reasons you have for considering divorce. You may be eligible for a marriage annulment. Filing for divorce does not have to be the only answer. By discussing your case with me, I will apply my philosophy as an attorney of promoting collaborative law rather than escalating an already emotional situation.
