Paternity can be established in a number of different ways under Illinois law. Establishing paternity is important because, once established, a court can allocate parental responsibilities (formerly known as custody), allocate parenting time, and order child support. The level of complexity in establishing paternity depends upon the particular circumstances of the individuals involved.

At the beginning of the year, changes went into effect in Illinois related to the process for obtaining a divorce. The fault grounds for a divorce have been eliminated. Instead, divorces will be granted when irreconcilable differences exist in the marriage.

Individuals who are planning on marrying may be interested in forming a premarital agreement. This type of agreement defines the rights and responsibilities of each party during a relationship, as well as what happen in the event the relationship ends. Premarital agreements are also referred to as prenuptial agreements.
