The Illinois divorce process commences when one spouse files a Petition for Dissolution of Marriage in the circuit court of the county where either spouse resides. Once the other spouse is served with the petition, they have 30 days to respond. Throughout the process, issues such as the division of property, the allocation of parent responsibility, and spousal maintenance are addressed. The court strives to divide marital property equitably, not necessarily equally, and decisions about the allocation of parental responsibility are determined based on the best interests of the child and the financial circumstances of the parents, among other factors. To finalize the divorce, a Judgment for Dissolution of Marriage is entered by the court. The whole process can last anywhere from a few months to a few years, depending on the complexity of the case and the level of agreement between the parties.
