Attempts at saving your marriage have proven unsuccessful, and now you realize you must move forward with a divorce. You likely have many questions and concerns at this time. At difficult times like these, having a trusted and knowledgeable divorce lawyer near you is imperative. Our Chicagoland divorce practice is dedicated to serving spouses of all family types and backgrounds. We have the skills necessary to effectively and proficiently resolve even the most challenging divorce cases.
Although each divorce is as unique as the couple seeking it, they generally all involve the same issues that must be settled. These issues include:
Each of these issues can spark emotions and arguments that make it difficult for a couple to settle without the help of a seasoned Illinois divorce lawyer. If the couple cannot reach an agreement, the issues will be taken before a family court judge who will determine the outcome. To have more control, many couples decide to hire their own attorney and work towards negotiating settlements that they can both live with. In fact, many divorce cases settle out of court.
Under the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act, in order to file for divorce, at least one spouse must be an Illinois resident for the 90 days preceding the filing. The divorce can be filed at the circuit court in the county where the spouse initiating the filing of the divorce proceeding currently resides. Illinois is one of many states that allow couples to have a no-fault divorce. In this type of divorce, the filing spouse does not have to prove that the other spouse did anything wrong. The filing spouse is only required to cite Irreconcilable Differences, stating that the union is “irretrievably broken,” meaning your marriage cannot be repaired, and you and your spouse no longer get along. Furthermore, attempts to reconcile must have failed or making such attempts would not be in the best interests of the family. Illinois no longer recognizes fault-based grounds for divorce, such as adultery, cruelty, or drunkenness. However, such misconduct might still affect how the various issues in a divorce case are resolved, including spousal support, property division, and child custody.
If you are going through a divorce, you need a seasoned Illinois divorce attorney on your side to ensure your needs are met. Your attorney can help you meet the divorce filing requirements, ensure that all court deadlines are met in your case, and help you determine and work for solutions that are best for your entire family.

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
