Role of the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act in Chicago Family Law Cases

The Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act (IMDMA) governs many legal matters affecting families in Chicago, including but not limited to:

  • Process of filing for your divorce;
  • Distribution of marital property;
  • Spousal support;
  • Allocation of parental responsibilities; and
  • Child support.

Many modifications also are governed by the IMDMA, including modifications of allocation judgments, spousal support, and child support.

Illinois Laws Involved in Family Law Matters

Beyond the IMDMA, other types of family law matters in Chicago fall under various Illinois statutes. For example, at the Law Office of George M. Sanders, P.C., we regularly help clients with cases involving domestic violence and seeking orders of protection. In Chicago, the Illinois Domestic Violence Act of 1986 governs most matters pertaining to orders of protection and family violence.

We also routinely assist Chicago residents with prenuptial agreements, including drafting premarital agreements and determining whether certain prenuptial agreement terms will be enforceable in the event of a divorce. The Illinois Uniform Premarital Agreement Act governs prenuptial agreements, commonly known as “prenups,” in Chicago.
