As attorney Siegel just stated, when a case is stricken from the call, it merely means that the matter it was set for on the day in question will not proceed until someone motions it up for a hearing on another day.

J. Richard Kulerski Esq.'s answer
There are eleven grounds for divorce in IL, and they ALL involve misbehavior, except for irreconcilable differences. Could it be that your question has to do with the fact that spousal misconduct will not affect monetary awards or property division?

J. Richard Kulerski Esq.'s answer
What I think you are looking for does not exist.There is no "easy" way to divorce, as such. For the most part, the same fundamental steps and procedures must be taken in small cases just as they are in large cases. There is no special treatment given to people who have "nothing" to fight about.

Q: If a state farm agent retired after his divorce, would the spouse be entitled to any of the termination payments?

1 Answer | Asked in Divorce for Illinois on Jul 3, 2012

Follow Question


J. Richard Kulerski Esq.'s answer
A lawyer must meet with you to learn all of your facts in order to be able to give you a proper answer. I think you are talking about his state farm pension, and your entitlement could depend on the language in your judgment, or perhaps on possible fraud in his disclosure. You have an uphill battle.
