In the time that it has taken for same-sex marriage to be legalized nationwide, some same-sex couples have married in a state where their union was legal and been together long enough to determine that they want a divorce. Unlike many other states, Illinois has allowed same-sex couples to enter into civil unions since 2011. The state legalized same-sex marriages in 2014 with the passage of the Illinois Religious Freedom – Marriage Act. These couples gained the same rights as other married couples, and Illinois began recognizing same-sex marriages performed in other states. Even though the state has been ahead of the national curve, same-sex divorces are still relatively new in the Illinois courts.
The dissolution procedures of same-sex marriage in Illinois are the same as for any other married couple seeking a divorce.
