Approaching Your Kane County Divorce Strategically
Whether your spouse served you divorce papers or you separated amicably after months of counseling, you may be uncertain how to proceed. How will the divorce impact your financial situation, your career, your relationships, and even the direction of your life?
Feeling uncertain is natural. However, the more strategic you can be about your divorce planning, the better. The first thing our attorneys will do is to help you get clear about your options and the likely scenarios that will play out.
The process of getting a divorce begins with a petition. If you file a petition, you will be known as the plaintiff or petitioner. If your spouse files, you'll be known as the respondent or defendant.
In the petition, which goes on the public record, the petitioner lays out the reasons for the divorce - also known as the "grounds" for divorce. Illinois law allows both "fault" divorces and "no fault" divorces, also known as divorces due to irreconcilable differences. You or your spouse may pursue a fault divorce, if one of you engaged in adultery, desertion, acts of cruelty, or substance abuse or addiction, or a crime that resulted in a felony conviction.
