Grounds For Divorce In Illinois
As of 2016, the only grounds for divorce is irreconcilable differences. Prior to 2016 the required period to live separate and apart would vary based on the grounds for divorce. Now, as long as the parties agree to waive this waiting period, the spouses are not required to live separate and apart prior to filing for divorce. If the parties cannot agree to waive the waiting period, they are required to live separate and apart for 6 months prior to filing for divorce.
