Recent Changes in Divorce Law

Downers Grove divorce lawyers

Downers Grove divorce attorney Kevin O'Flaherty discusses recent changes to Illinois divorce law.

Downers Grove divorce lawyers

In 2016, changes to the Downers Grove Marriage and Defense of Marriage Act occurred with the intention of reducing the potential disputes between parties and with a view toward updating the law to comport with modern co-parenting arrangements. Some of those changes include:

  • The replacement of various grounds for divorce, such as bigamy and adultery, with only one ground for divorce: Irreconcilable differences.  
  • The 2-year requirement of living separate and apart prior to a divorce based on irreconcilable differences has been reduced to 6 months.  This requirement will now be waived if both spouses agree. 
  • The concepts of "custody" and "visitation" have been reimagined as "allocation of parenting time and responsibility."
  • The law regarding relocaiton when children are involved has been modified.

These are some of the many additions to the law that occurred. For more information, check out our article about the new changes by our Downers Grove Divorce attorneys.

In this article our Downers Grove divorce attorneys explain family mediation.  Family mediation is an alternative dispute resolution method whereby the parties cooperate to settle issues such as allocation of parenting time and responsibility, child support, maintenance, and division of marital assets outside of court with the the assistance of a third party mediator.  This process is intended to reduce litigation, and therefore reduce the expense and stress of a divorce.  

Our Downers grove divorce lawyers explain the difference between voluntary mediation and court ordered mediation as well as situations in which mediation may be inappropriate.
