Will it Matter in Our Divorce Where We Got Married?

DuPage County Divorce Lawyers Address Whether Marriage Locations Matter in Divorce Proceedings

Many questions come up when you either contemplate or begin the divorce process. This includes matters related to child custody and visitation, child support, spousal support, and marital property distribution. Before you make any decision, speak with an experienced divorce attorney who can guide you through the divorce process.

One common question is whether the location of your wedding will cause complications during divorce if it occurred in another state or country.

The skilled divorce lawyers at Mirabella, Kincaid, Frederick & Mirabella, LLC understand the uncertainty and various concerns that accompany divorce. We know the strain can be overwhelming as you ponder your post-divorce life. Whatever worries you might have, we can provide the legal advice and representation you need to lessen the emotional burden.

Regardless of whether you and your spouse can reach agreements via collaborative divorce or divorce mediation, or if you require divorce litigation, you can trust our attorneys to fight for the resolution you want.

Does Marriage in One State Affect Divorce in Another?

In short, no. If you were legally married in another state or country and your marriage does not conflict with Illinois law, it is legally recognized by the state's courts. If you have resided within the state of Illinois for at least 90 days prior to filing a petition for divorce, the court has legal authority to grant the dissolution of your marriage.
