Divorces are among the few family law decisions that can be made unilaterally. One spouse decides that they have done all they can to stay in a marriage and opts to file for divorce. However, it is possible that the other spouse will refuse to sign divorce papers, which can make the process far more difficult than it normally is. There are ways around such a roadblock, and it is important to know what they are.
Factors to Keep In Mind
If you are planning to initiate a divorce in the near future, there are several important factors for you to consider. The first is that under Illinois law, it is, for all intents and purposes, impossible to stop a divorce from happening even if one spouse is dead set against it. It goes against public policy to keep a spouse in a marriage where he or she is miserable. Despite this, it is entirely possible for one spouse to stall and obstruct the process.
