Understanding key points about legal separation in Illinois

When a couple in Illinois is experiencing problems in their relationship, but are not yet ready to move forward with a divorce, a legal separation is an alternative that could be viable as they determine their next step. As with all family law issues, there are requirements with a legal separation. Those who are considering this option should be aware of the law relating to such issues as support, maintenance and what can and cannot be done.

Might conciliation be ordered and hold up my divorce?

Often, Illinois couples who have decided that their marriage is no longer working and they want to get a divorce will want to get it over with as quickly as possible. Both sides might prefer to just move on with their lives as they have determined that a divorce is the preferable course of action. However, not every case is that simple and the person who seeks the divorce could meet with resistance from the respondent, who would like to try and save the marriage. This is where it might lead to the requirement that conciliation be considered before the divorce is granted.
