Irreconcilable Differences

By far and away, the most common ground for divorce is the ground of irreconcilable differences. Irreconcilable differences are where there are differences in the marriage which have led to the irretrievable breakdown of the marriage. Attempts at reconciliation have failed and the parties consider the marriage is over. In the state of Illinois, the grounds of irreconcilable differences contain a waiting period of six months.
