Power of Attorney and Advance Directives in Divorce
Any advanced medical directive, or property power of attorney, or healthcare power of attorney, that may have been executed prior to any Judgment of Dissolution of Marriage being entered, identifying the ex-spouse as a power of attorney or as an alternative power of attorney, should be reviewed and considered, and changes made to effectuate new documents, if appropriate.
Spouses can file for a no-fault divorce in Illinois, as long as they have lived separate and apart for at least two years and state that irreconcilable differences ended their marriage. This two-year separation period may be waived "upon written stipulation of both spouses, filed with the court."
