All too often, divorcing couples believe that nearly anything is fair game in divorce. Quite the opposite is true, however. In fact, there are many types of communication and conversation that are protected by law. One prime example is the eavesdropping law that protects private conversations. The following information can help you better understand the difference between public communications in divorce and conversations that are considered private and protected under Illinois state law.

What is Considered a Private Conversation?

Private conversations are any conversations that another party expects to remain private. This applies, not just to verbal communications, but also written ones and ones sent through text or other forms of communication. This means your spouse's email may be considered private if they never explicitly gave you permission to use it. Further, a conversation held in their home, over a phone, would generally be considered a private conversation. In contrast, a loud phone conversation in public might not be considered private. The same might be said of a public Facebook post since it can be seen by others.

After you receive your judgment from the court finalizing your divorce, you may feel a sense of relief. However, even after a divorce is final, there may be additional issues.

In the months and years after the divorce, you may need to go back to court for modifications or for enforcement actions.

Considering divorce proceedings as contentious is common. For some people, the entire proceeding is adversarial, from filing for divorce to property division. For others, both parties are in agreement that the marriage is not working and have reached a mutual decision to divorce. While parties may disagree on various particulars of a settlement, such as property division, alimony, or child custody, those parties are able to work together to address the issues outside of court and are able to bring their agreement before a judge.

How Does That Work?

In an uncontested divorce, the parties agree to the grounds for a divorce, and are able to come to an agreement on the terms of the settlement. The agreements are generally reached through the parties' attorneys, who are able to work with the parties individually to explain their rights, the law, and what their outcome might be if they are unable to reach an agreement and go before the court for resolution.
