Cook County Divorce Lawyers Serving Clients in Illinois

Divorce is an extremely complicated legal process under any circumstances, and divorce can be particularly contentious and complex when the parties are dealing with significant assets or minor children from the marriage. While the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act (IMDMA) (750 ILCS 5/101 et seq.) governs most divorce matters in Cook County, it is important to keep in mind that divorce cases can vary widely. For example, a couple getting divorced after a long-term marriage with substantial marital assets will have a much different divorce experience than a couple planning on divorce after a short marriage and relatively little marital property. Likewise, a divorce with no minor children from the marriage will be quite different from a divorce in which the court must allocate parental responsibilities. 

If you are considering divorce, or if your spouse has filed for divorce, it is important to have a team of experienced divorce attorneys in Cook County on your side. The advocates at the Arami Law Office can talk with you today about the details of your case.
