The decision to end a marriage is one of the most stressful and heartbreaking choices a person can make.

The divorce process is even more challenging when the couple has children or when a spouse does not want to end the marriage. The Longe Law Firm assists clients through these emotional and complicated legal affairs in a caring and constructive manner.

In the State of Illinois, the requirement to establish “grounds for a divorce” has been discharged. In Illinois, all divorces are awarded on the no-fault grounds of “irreconcilable differences.” This means either spouse may file and obtain a divorce without the burden of establishing wrongdoing on the part of their spouse. A divorce may also be granted even when the other spouse does not want a divorce.
