Practice Area: Divorce and separation
Outcome: Illinois has personal jurisdiction over husband
Description: On behalf of Mrs. Konrath, we filed her Petition for Dissolution of Marriage in Illinois on December 2, 2008. Her husband filed 2 days latter in Indiana. Though the children attended school in Indiana and that had been the parties' home state, Mrs. Konrath had left and established residence in Illinois at the end of November in another home owned by the parties and previously used only for weekends and vacations.
