reconciliationWhen you are going through a divorce, you might feel like you never want to see or speak to your former spouse again. You might even hate your former spouse. This is normal – divorces are emotionally trying and many couples have to work hard just to remain cordial after their divorces. But once time passes and emotions cool, some individuals find themselves voluntarily spending time with their former spouses again. Some even go as far as to fall in love a second time and remarry – each other! An estimated six percent of couples in the United States follow this pattern.

If you are considering remarrying your former spouse, you probably have a lot of questions you need answered. You have already divided your shared assets – now what? Do you combine them again? Do your individual portions from your first divorce remain singly-held property? These are questions that can be answered by an experienced divorce attorney.

Unfortunately, the same cannot always be said for a couple that divorces. One party might want to end the marriage, while the other party might be looking for a way to save it. However, once a spouse files a divorce petition, it is probably too late for the non-petitioning spouse to preserve the marriage. Illinois law allows spouses to contest the grounds of a divorce, but an attempt to legally deny it all together will likely be futile.

Before a court will grant a petition for dissolution of marriage, the petitioning party must establish grounds for divorce.
