What are the grounds for a divorce in Illinois?

‘Irreconcilable differences’ is one of the most common grounds for getting a divorce in Illinois. Once a divorce has been filed due to irreconcilable differences (or some other reason) by one spouse, the other spouse cannot do anything to prevent the divorce from moving forward. Under the Dissolution of Marriage act, all divorces within the State of Illinois are treated as ‘no-fault’ meaning neither of the spouses can be punished financially for the failure of their marriage.
