Breach of Contract in Illinois

HomeBreach of Contract IllinoisBreach of Contract in Illinois

Illinois courts recognize a breach of contract when a party to the contract fails to perform the obligations agreed upon without a legal reason.

  • To be enforced by law, the contract should be complete with an offer, proposal and acceptance.
  • The parties should also have capacities to consent and should be legally entitled to enter into agreement.
  • The court recognizes the party who fails in performing the duty as the defendant.
  • Once breach of contract in Illinois is proven, the plaintiff is absolved from all obligations under the contract.
  • However, the plaintiff should have performed all duties that would have enabled the defendant to perform his promise before filing a legal suit.
