Are You Headed for Illinois Divorce Court?

 Posted on January 30,2023 in Illinois Divorce

St. Charles, IL divorce lawyerMany couples reach a point where they are no longer sure if they want to be married any longer. Even good marriages can hit bumps in the road. So how do you know when you are in a “this too shall pass” moment or if the marriage really has too many problems to work through and it would be better to divorce? The following are some signs that indicate it may be time to contact a Kane County divorce attorney and find out what your legal options may be.


Just like the old song “The Thrill Is Gone” laments, one of the most difficult realizations a person can have when examining the state of their marriage is that they are no longer in love with their spouse. The spark that once was there has disappeared. If you no longer feel as if fighting for your marriage is worth it, it may not be. 


Having time to yourself is important, especially when juggling children, household duties, and work. But spending time with your spouse is also important to the health of your marriage. If you find yourself avoiding spending time with your spouse, looking for excuses to leave the house when they are there, and just avoiding making plans together, this is another indicator that there are issues in your relationship that may be impossible to fix.


Another sign that the marriage is broken is constant bickering and fighting when you and your spouse are together. While it is normal to have disagreements, couples who fight about the big issues – money, children, etc. – and also fight about the most mundane issues, are often in a serious state of marital breakdown.


One major red flag that the marriage is in trouble is if a spouse has had an affair. Even thinking about cheating on your spouse is a signal that you are unhappy in your marriage and could be headed for divorce.


Another red flag that you could be headed to divorce court is if you discover your spouse is transferring or liquidating marital assets. Some spouses will put assets in children’s names and claim this is for estate planning purposes. These are potential signs that your spouse is planning on a divorce but is trying to block you from getting your fair share of the marital estate.
