If you are facing a divorce, you are facing a major transition that will directly affect your parental and financial rights. Divorce is the dissolution of a legal contract, and upon finalization, you will be handed divorce terms that guide your post-divorce future, which makes having an experienced divorce attorney in Downers Grove on your side critical.
Your divorce will be unique to your marriage, but the terms that you and your soon-to-be-ex must negotiate fall into the same categories that those of every other divorce fall, including:
Any terms that you and your divorcing spouse are unable to resolve outside of court – with the focused guidance of your respective divorce attorney – will need to be determined by the court on your behalf. This fact is very motivating to many divorcing couples (who are invested in maintaining their decision-making power).
The assets that you accumulate over the course of your marriage amount to your marital assets, and they are intended to be divided equitably – or fairly – upon divorce. While the division of marital property has the potential to become very complicated very quickly, a few factors that consistently complicate the matter include:
Your divorce will address legal custody (parental responsibilities), which refers to who will be making important decisions on behalf of your children, including the following types of decisions:
Legal custody can be either sole or joint.
Your divorce will also determine physical custody (your parenting time schedule). Your options for physical custody arrangements are considerable, and you and your children’s other parent are generally free to create whatever kind of schedule works for you. If the decision falls to the court, however, you will almost certainly receive one of its standard parenting time schedules.
Child support payments are determined in accordance with state calculation guidelines. These payments are based on each parent’s income and the number of overnights each of you has with the children. In general, the parent who earns more pays child support to the other.
Alimony is typically awarded when two exes experience a financial imbalance upon divorce. Alimony payments are intended to help the financially disadvantaged ex take the steps that are necessary to gain financial independence.

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
Arami Law handled my international divorce with professionalism and courtesy. They were objective and honest in their interactions with me. I had wanted to waive maintenance and share parenting, and went in fully expecting a push back from legal counsel. Kourosh and Paige were fantastic and completely understanding of where I came from. In much less time than I hear these cases take, we were able to secure our divorce and move on to better conversations.
Mr. Arami has been succesfully representing me in a child support issue. I hope to use him for representation in the future if needed.
I have had a recent experience working with Mr Arami, I found him an intelligent, compassionate and a seasoned professional. He does listen to his clients and make sure he is always available for their help. I would highly recommend Mr Arami.
Arami Law represented me in my divorce and they did an outstanding job. They are very knowledgeable and understand fathers' rights. They fought for me to make sure I retain all of my custodial rights. Even the judge in the case complimented them in their professionalism. They made themselves available day and night and even on the weekends. I could not recommend them more.
Legal issues are never easy, so needless to say that having a knowledgeable team on your corner is very much needed. Mr. Arami and his staff are exactly that. He has remained a text/call away from the start. He has handled my very complex yet delicate matter extremely well, I couldn’t be more satisfied. Thank you very much Mr. Arami.
He is honest when he gives you advice. The advice he gave me was to save money, time, and to have a better outcome in my case. I had to go to court for a second time and chose him again.
Kourosh is literally the best attorney ever I highly recommend anyone that is looking for the best attorney to hire him ! he works so hard and very professional, he will keep you updated on everything that is going on and also he’s always available when you need him including weekends. He finalized my case with the outcome that i wanted. Thank you Arami law you deserve more than just 5 stars !
