If you have come to the difficult decision that a divorce is in your future or if you have already been served with divorce papers, facing the matter head-on is an important first step. While the emotional turmoil that is closely associated with divorce may leave you seeking cover – rather than reaching out for legal guidance – overcoming your inclination to ignore the issue is critical. The sooner you secure an experienced divorce attorney near you, the better prepared you’ll be to protect your financial and parental rights throughout the divorce process.
It’s important to understand that while your divorce will be unique to you, your divorcing spouse, and the involved circumstances, you will need to address the same terms of divorce that all divorcing couples must, including:
When it comes to resolving these terms, you have options that include:
Any terms that you’re ultimately not able to negotiate will need to be resolved by the court.
Parenting time determines when your children will be with you and when they’ll be with their other parent. Illinois courts turn to the best interests of the children when making parenting time determinations, and their goal is maximizing the amount of time each parent is afforded.
Parental responsibilities address the matter of primary decision-making, including parenting decisions like the following:
Parental responsibilities can be sole or joint.
The State of Illinois uses a careful calculation process in relation to child support. While a range of factors is involved in this equation, the number of overnights each parent has with the children and each parent’s earnings typically guide who pays child support.
In Illinois, those assets that you, your spouse, or the two of you together acquire during the years of your marriage are classified as marital. Upon divorce, these marital assets must be divided between you in a manner that is considered fair – in relation to a range of primary factors.
Alimony will only factor into your divorce if one of you is left without the resources to continue supporting yourself – while the other has the financial ability to help.

It is simply indescribable how dedicated Mr. Arami is to his craft. I was in a situation where I approached him last minute, to say the least. He went above and beyond - he explained things to me in a way I understood, he worked after hours on my behalf (one night until near midnight), and most importantly, he was able to to execute an agreement that was fair and where all parties involved were satisfied. Mr. Arami is probably one of the best attorneys in his field in Chicagoland and you will not be disappointed with his services.
He has been the most helpful person I have ever had the pleasure of working with. He made everything so seamless and less stressful than I ever could’ve imagined. If I could recommend him more than 5 stars I would.
