Family law is a broad area of the law that covers many different issues that affect families of numerous sizes. Sometimes families are made up of two spouses who need help filing for divorce and dealing with the distribution of marital assets. In other situations, families may include children from a marriage and require the assistance of an experienced Des Plaines family law attorney in developing a parenting agreement. Under the new Illinois child support system, determining each parent’s support obligation can also be complex, especially when one or both of the parents already have minor children from another marriage for which they provide support.
At Arami Law, we know that no two family law cases are alike, and we provide personalized representation to each of our clients. We can get started on your case today.
As we mentioned, at Arami Law, we handle numerous types of family law issues, including but not limited to:
Depending upon the specific facts of your case, divorce issues can vary widely. However, all Des Plaines residents who are planning to file for divorce need to learn more about the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act (IMDMA). The IMDMA governs almost all matters pertaining to divorce in Des Plaines and throughout the state of Illinois, such as:
Illinois is what is known as a “no-fault divorce” state. This means that there are no grounds for divorce. Instead, any party filing for divorce will need to state that there are irreconcilable differences. This typically requires that the spouses live separate and apart for six months prior to the divorce, but a Des Plaines family lawyer can tell you more.
If you are going through a divorce in Illinois and have questions about child custody, it is important to recognize that Illinois courts no longer award child custody to one or both parents. Instead, there is a new model through which the court will allocate parenting time (physical time spent with the child) and parental responsibilities (right to make important decisions about the child’s upbringing and future). If the parents can agree to matters of parenting time and parental responsibilities, they can enter into an agreement through what is called a “parenting plan,” and the court can sign off on it.
Families also deal with child support issues. Illinois child support law recently changed to an “income shares” model. This means that both parents provide some of the support obligation for the child, based on a new set of guidelines. The income shares model took effect on July 1, 2017.

I cannot express enough gratitude and appreciation for having Arami Law represent me during one of the most crippling life experiences, divorce. 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.
Arami Law helped me throughout a difficult process. Easy to work with digital payments. Highly recommended
