How easy is it to file for no- fault divorce under these circumstances in illinois?

My husband informed me through text message in March that he wants a divorce. We’ve only been married for 6 months and we do have a child together. I have read probably every website available and none of them can answer this question. We want to file under irreconcilable differences and I don’t want to have to be separated for 2 years or even 6 months to do so.

      if your state has a mandatory waiting period for divorce to be granted following separation you have no choice but to wait for the final divorce to go through. Many times there is a 6 month period. what is your rush? somebody want to remarry tomorrow or what? there is a child involved and it will take some time anyway. if you two can work together without attorneys it will go much smoother and faster. go and file the papers for divorce and the clock starts. 6 mo is not that long to wait for a divorce, especially when there is a child involved. You have to deal with visitation, child support..

      If you’ve only been married for 6 months, it would probably be easier for the two of you to get the marriage annulled, rather than to get divorced.

      There is no way in Illinois to get no foul divorce without waiting period of 2 years. If the spouses have lived separate and apart for a continuous period of not less than 6 months next preceding the entry of the judgment dissolving the marriage, as evidenced by testimony or affidavits of the spouses, the requirement of living separate and apart for a continuous period in excess of 2 years may be waived upon written stipulation of both spouses filed with the court.
