(750 ILCS 5/) Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act.
I love to site my sources and if you have any questions or if the link is too complicated to understand, I can answer any questions you may have.
From my personal experience I can guide you and help answer your questions. What happened to me will be discussed on other pages on this site, excuse if I repeat myself.
My husband came home one day and literally told me “I Fell Out Of Love with YOU” and handed me the wedding ring I gave him in marriage and walked out; literally. To be honest, I did not see that coming, it was like someone knocked me out and when I woke up my life was different in that single moment.
The First thing I knew I had to do was accept that he wanted a Divorce and I did not.
STEP ONE: ACCEPT
STEP TWO: FIND AN ATTORNEY
STEP THREE: FIND OUT IF I CAN MAKE PAYMENTS TO THE ATTORNEY, YOUR STATE LAWS ON DIVORCE, AND HOW LONG IT WILL TAKE.
I found an attorney and he did a free consultation. What that means is that you want to ask questions and see if the attorney is right for you and sign an agreement/contract. Be prepared to come up with $1,200.00 up front as you sign the contract. This will get the Divorce going.
Once I chose my attorney, he told me what I needed to bring to his office in order to proceed. The reason why he needed all of my financial records is to be able to fill out the Divorce Petition.
