How long do I have to be separated before I can file for divorce in Illinois?

This all comes down to "grounds" for divorce, or your reason. You might have grounds that don't require a period of separation. Many people even get divorced while living in the same house, even as the divorce is being made final. If you belive that your marriage is coming to an end but you are worried about having to be "separated", don't sweat it.  Instead, come on in for a confidential consultation where we will talk about your circumstances and determine whehter or not "separation" issues will present a problem for you and if so, what your options are.

Fill out a contact form or give us a  call at 630 250-8813 to set up a no obligation appointment. To learn more about divorce in general, be sure to request a copy of my free book, Defending the Ending.
