If you are going through a divorce or breaking up with a partner and you have minor children from your relationship, you will need to go through a child custody case in Illinois. An experienced Evanston child custody attorney can speak with you today about the allocation of parental responsibilities in Cook County.
Under the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act (IMDMA), courts do not award child custody in Evanston or elsewhere in Illinois any longer. Instead, the language of child custody has been replaced with the “allocation of parental responsibilities.” Those parental responsibilities include both significant decision-making responsibilities and parenting time.
At Arami Law, Inc., we routinely assist clients with a wide variety of issues that arise in child custody cases, such as:
The allocation of parental responsibilities can occur in two ways — through a parenting plan or an allocation judgment. If parents can reach an agreement on sharing parental time and responsibilities, they can create a parenting plan for court approval. If parents cannot reach a decision about how to allocate significant decision-making responsibilities or parenting time, then the court will issue an allocation judgment in which it will allocate those parental responsibilities.
Under the IMDMA, in order to modify an existing child custody order, you will usually need to show that a substantial change in circumstances has occurred. Our child custody lawyers in Evanston can evaluate your case to help you understand whether the change in your circumstances warrants asking the court for a modification.
For relocation, you will first need to make sure that your planned move actually constitutes a relocation. If you are planning to move to a new residence within 50 miles of your current home in Evanston and within Illinois, or within 25 miles from your current home in Evanston but across state borders, you may not need to seek court approval for a relocation. If you do need court permission for a relocation, we can help to show that the relocation is in the best interests of your child.
Child custody cases can involve many different kinds of issues, from allocating significant decision-making responsibilities and parenting time to modifying an existing parenting plan or allocation judgment when there has been a substantial change in circumstances or a parent is seeking a relocation. Our Evanston child custody attorneys can speak with you today about the allocation of parental responsibilities and modification under Illinois law. Contact Arami Law, Inc. today to learn more about how we can assist you with your child custody case.

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.
