Family law cases often involve some of the most emotional legal matters. Many family law issues are related to the breakup of a family as a result of divorce, or a contentious child custody case between parents who cannot communicate with one another for the benefit of their children. Even when the parties are still on relatively amicable terms, family law cases can be incredibly difficult for the parties involved. Whether you need help with your divorce case, a child custody matter, or a modification, one of the best Chicago family law attorneys at our firm can begin working with you on your case today.
Many family law matters in Illinois are governed by the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act (IMDMA). At the Arami Law Office, we represent clients in a wide variety of family law cases. Examples of some of the types of family law issues we regularly handle include but are not limited to the following:
Many family law issues are financial ones. For example, divorces involve the division of marital property, and they also frequently include matters pertaining to spousal maintenance and child support. Even outside the context of divorce, parties may be seeking child support or may need assistance drafting a premarital or postnuptial agreement. Premarital and postnuptial agreements are contracts between spouses (or soon-to-be spouses) that usually outline financial agreements in the event of a divorce. For example, a premarital agreement may contain a clause in which the parties agree that certain assets will remain separate or non-marital property and will not be divided in a divorce, or one of the parties may waive his or her right to seek spousal maintenance in a divorce.
Child custody, or the allocation of parental responsibilities, is an issue that arises in many family law cases in the Chicago area. You may know that courts in the state no longer award child custody. Rather, courts allocate parental responsibilities based on the child’s best interests. Whether you need assistance with an initial allocation judgment or modifying a judgment or parenting plan, our firm can help.
