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.

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
