Power of Attorneys and Divorce
If a person is competent and if there is no duress or undue influence, a person can freely execute a Power of Attorney identifying another person or entity to act on his or her behalf.
A valid Power of Attorney can be effective immediately, when executed, or it can be effective upon the occurrence of certain events such as, but not limited to, confirmation of an attended physician that the maker is no longer competent to act on their own behalf.
Grounds for a fault divorce in Illinois are impotence, bigamy, adultery, desertion for one year, habitual drunkenness or drug addiction for at least two years, repeated and extreme physical or mental cruelty, felony conviction or imprisonment, and infection with a sexually transmitted disease.
