An issue occasionally encountered in divorce is that a spouse will simply walk out, disappear or otherwise not cooperate or participate in the divorce proceedings. Hence, this can lead to issues obtaining a divorce decree. If your spouse cannot be located or contacted, it can be a little more difficult to obtain your divorce. Consulting an experienced family law attorney is advised.

NOTE: A new Illinois law governing how child support is calculated went into effect in July 2017. Please visit our child support page for details

When two people divorce, they may arrive at an acceptable settlement to allocate their property and other interests, including parenting time with children and an amount of support. However, this does not close the book on all marriage-related matters forever. It is possible in Illinois to make certain modifications to your divorce decree after a Judgment is entered, though not all issues may be reopened.

If you have adopted a foreign-born child, you may wish to go through a process called re-adoption after returning to Illinois. Though not required by law, re-adoption offers several benefits to both adoptive parents and the adopted child. Further, the process is usually a simple and happy occasion.
