People may have all kinds of grounds for divorce in Illinois, but the state only recognizes one ground for divorce now. Public Act 099-0090 in 2016 made Illinois a no-fault divorce state.

Illinois now establishes that people can divorce based on “irreconcilable differences,” meaning spouses can no longer get along despite repeated efforts to try and work things out. 750 ILCS 5/401(a-5) establishes an irrebuttable presumption that the requirement of irreconcilable differences is met when the parties live separate and apart for a continuous period of not less than six months immediately preceding the entry of the judgment dissolving the marriage.

At least one spouse needs to reside in Illinois for 90 days before filing for divorce. While all divorces are now considered to be no-fault, this is not to say that fault for the breakdown of a marriage will not impact other considerations.

If child custody or visitation are an issue in a divorce, then fault could be a factor in a judge’s decision. Fault for the breakdown of a marriage could also complicate certain property distribution decisions when one spouse’s spending hampered the couple’s monetary health.
