Under Illinois law, due to recent changes in the law, every dissolution of marriage in the State is dissolved on the basis of irreconcilable differences.

This is essentially no-fault divorce. All of the prior grounds for divorce, such as mental cruelty, physical cruelty, adultery, etc. have all been taken away. As a result, grounds are now just a formality that is required in every case to obtain a dissolution of marriage, but no longer ever a litigated issue.
