Type of Divorce Cases Our Attorneys Handle in Chicago

The dedicated team of Chicago divorce lawyers at the Arami Law Office handles many different kinds of legal issues pertaining to divorce, such as: 

  • Filing a petition for the dissolution of marriage;
  • Responding to divorce papers and filing an answer;
  • Documenting assets and debts;
  • Division of marital assets and debts;
  • Classifications of marital and separate property;
  • Forensic accounting issues in high asset divorces, including hidden assets;
  • Dividing businesses and business assets owned in whole or in part by the spouses;
  • Gray divorce issues, including divorce matters after a long-term marriage;
  • Seeking spousal maintenance or determining spousal maintenance obligations;

  • Allocation of parental responsibilities, including significant decision-making responsibilities and parenting time;

While legal issues involving minor children such as child support or the allocation of parental responsibilities do not need to be raised as part of a divorce case, any married couple with minor children from the marriage should plan for the court to step in.

How do I File for Divorce in Chicago? 

Filing for divorce, along with most other legal issues pertaining to your divorce, is a process that is governed by the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act (IMDMA). To file for divorce in Chicago, you must file a complaint or petition for dissolution of marriage. That petition must provide a variety of details about you and your spouse. In addition, you will need to make clear that irreconcilable differences have caused the irretrievable breakdown of your marriage. 

An experienced divorce lawyer in Chicago can help you with the initial filing and can represent you through each stage of the divorce process, from property division and spousal maintenance to child support and the allocation of parental responsibilities.
