If you are considering a divorce – or are already facing one – you have a difficult journey forward. Having an experienced Burr Ridge divorce lawyer in your corner, however, can provide you with the peace of mind that comes from knowing you have the professional legal counsel you need to defend your parental and financial rights throughout the divorce process.
Your divorce will be unique to your family situation, but the basic terms that you will need to hammer out with your divorcing spouse do not vary and include:
Child support is calculated according to state guidelines, and alimony applies only in those highly specific situations in which one spouse experiences a divorce-related financial setback and the other spouse has the financial means to help them obtain sturdier financial footing.
You and your divorcing spouse are free to negotiate divorce terms that work for you and that you are both willing to sign off on. In so doing, you can avoid the court’s intervention on these important matters that are extremely personal to you and your children. This does not, however, mean that you and your soon-to-be-ex have to 100 percent agree on every divorce term from the outset (which very rarely happens). You have your respective divorce attorneys to help skillfully guide your negotiations, and there are also alternative dispute resolution options, such as mediation, available to you.
In Illinois, child custody is referred to as parental responsibility, which corresponds with legal custody, and parenting time, which corresponds with physical custody. Parental responsibility can be sole or joint, and it addresses who will be making the important decisions on behalf of your children after the divorce. Parenting time determines how you and your ex will split your time with your shared children. Your parenting time options include splitting your time directly down the middle, or one of you having the children the majority of the time, while the other has a parenting time schedule.
The division of marital property is generally a critical financial component of divorce, and the issue can become very complicated – and very contentious – very quickly. Generally, those assets that you and your spouse acquired while you are married (regardless of who makes the purchase) are considered marital property that must be divided equitably (or fairly) upon divorce.
If a divorce is on your horizon, the attentive Burr Ridge divorce lawyers at Arami Law are well-positioned to skillfully advocate for your parental and financial rights – in pursuit of divorce terms that work for you and your children.

Having Arami Law by my side has made all the difference. From the initial consultation Kourosh proved to be exceptionally professional and compassionate. Kourosh treats his clients like family and has genuine concern for his clients. Kourosh is highly intelligent and committed to delivering the best possible outcome for his clients. I highly recommend Arami Law to anyone needing a divorce attorney.
I interviewed almost a dozen attorneys before settling on Kourosh and his team at Arami Law. Every attorney a met with immediately jumped to how much they could get for me, boasting about how they could help me do X or Y to my soon to be former spouse with their legal prowess. Instead, when I met with Kourosh, he asked me what happened and how I wanted to handle my divorce, which was, admittedly, unconventional in the sense that I wanted to do what would let me sleep well at night which was much less than what I could...
Kourosh Arami was there when I needed him. He fought hard to make sure that I was treated fairly and always took time to explain what was going on and why. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs a lawyer that will fight for you.
