Same-Sex Marriage

Under Illinois law, people of the same sex are allowed to legally marry. That also means that dissolving the union requires a legal divorce, the same as every marriage.

Same-sex couples going through divorce face many of the same legal issues that heterosexual couples face, including division of marital property, business assets and retirement benefits. Many same-sex marriages also include issues regarding their parental responsibilities as they relate to an adopted child or stepchild from a previous relationship.
