Illinois Divorce

Laws current as of
April 13, 2017


WomensLaw.org currently does not have information about divorce in Illinois.  However, we hope the following links to outside sources may be helpful.

Illinois State Bar Association provides a divorce guide that includes information on grounds for divorce in Illinois, residency requirements, and maintenance.

Illinois Legal Aid has the following resources:

  • court forms that you may need if you wish to get a divorce as well as frequently asked questions; and 
  • summaries of relevant laws related to divorce, separation, maintenance and more.  The website also links you to the actual language of the laws.

WomensLaw.org is unrelated to the above organizations and cannot vouch for the accuracy of their sites.  We provide these links for your information only.

Below is general information about divorce.
