How to File for Divorce in Illinois

To get a divorce in Illinois, you must file a “Petition for Dissolution of Marriage.” Once this document has been filed, you will have to serve the other party with divorce papers. Both partners may retain their own attorney to represent them through divorce proceedings, or you may choose to represent yourself; however, having a divorce lawyer on your side can make a significant difference in the outcome of your case. No matter what type of divorce you are seeking, you can rest assured that our team has the knowledge and skill to represent you.
