Some of the most complex matters in any divorce case are those concerning financial issues. Under the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act (IMDMA), all property owned by both parties must be classified as marital or separate property. Only marital property, which includes assets and debts, will be divided. Courts will distribute marital property based on what is equitable to both parties, looking at a wide variety of factors.
When it comes to spousal maintenance and child support, there are specific guidelines that are applicable to most parties. For spousal maintenance, when the couple collectively earns less than $500,000 per year, the court will take 33% of the paying spouse’s income, subtract 25% of the receiving spouse’s income, and the resulting amount is the spousal maintenance award. For child support, both parents contribute to the child support obligation. The court will combine the parents’ income and look at the child support table to determine the monthly obligation. Then it will assign a portion of that obligation to each parent based on income, number of nights with the child, and other relevant factors.

After a bad breakup, Child support and custody battles can be time consuming and frustrating.

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
