Some notes on laws related to divorce in Illinois

All U.S. states have their own divorce laws. In Illinois, couples must reside in the state for three months before they can apply for divorce. However, couples need not wait for any specific period before finalizing divorce. When there is an irrevocable breakdown of marriage, Illinois couples may apply for a "no-fault" divorce. A no-fault divorce is a commonality in Illinois. In a no-fault divorce, neither spouse needs to prove fault to the other. Essentially, they are just saying that they do not get along.

What options are there for child custody schedules in Illinois?

States across the country are following the Uniform Child Custody Act to minimize child custody conflicts between states and make enforcement of child custody laws easier. In addition to those provisions in the Act, most states have their own child custody laws. The state of Illinois, for example, allows joint custody of children after divorce. Child custody laws also provide visitation rights for grandparents and even recognize a child's preferences when considering a custody decision.

Illinois state employees have support for adoption

According to the Illinois Department of Central Management Services, the state employee benefit package provides support for those employees who want to expand their families through adoption. This program encourages employees to adopt and benefits children who have been waiting to join a family for a long time.
