Grounds For Divorce

Important Updates To Illinois Divorce Law

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

How Can An Experienced Divorce Attorney Help?

At The Law Office Of Cynthia L. Lazar, I will help you understand the grounds for divorce that are available in the state of Illinois. I have more than 25 years of experience as a divorce attorney handling litigated divorce, divorce mediation and collaborative law cases.

I will personally work with you to understand your individual circumstances and any reasons you may have for considering divorce. Filing for divorce does not have to be the only answer; you may be eligible for a marriage annulment instead, for instance. By discussing your case with me, I can outline all options available to you and employ cooperative methods whenever possible to prevent escalating an already emotional situation.
