At Arami Law, Inc., we handle many different issues that arise in divorce cases in Evanston, Illinois, including but not limited to the following:
Most legal issues that arise in an Evanston divorce will be governed by the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act (IMDMA). Under the IMDMA, in order to file for divorce, there is no requirement that anyone prove “grounds” for divorce. Rather, Illinois is a “no-fault state,” which means that a court can enter a judgment for divorce (i.e., dissolution of marriage) as long as the following requirements have been met:
How is the no-fault divorce requirement met? According to the IMDMA, there is an irrebuttable presumption that the requirement has been met when the spouses have lived separate and apart for at least six months.
Divorces are generally either contested or uncontested. In an uncontested divorce, the parties have reached an agreement about all aspects of the divorce. With a contested divorce, one or more issues remain in dispute. Uncontested divorces are typically much quicker than uncontested divorces.
Just because a divorce starts out contested does not mean that the parties cannot reach an agreement through negotiation or divorce mediation.
Whether you are considering the possibility of divorce, you have already taken initial steps toward filing, or your case is underway and you need legal representation, an experienced Evanston divorce lawyer at our firm can speak with you today about your case.

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
Arami Law handled my international divorce with professionalism and courtesy. They were objective and honest in their interactions with me. I had wanted to waive maintenance and share parenting, and went in fully expecting a push back from legal counsel. Kourosh and Paige were fantastic and completely understanding of where I came from. In much less time than I hear these cases take, we were able to secure our divorce and move on to better conversations.
Mr. Arami has been succesfully representing me in a child support issue. I hope to use him for representation in the future if needed.
I have had a recent experience working with Mr Arami, I found him an intelligent, compassionate and a seasoned professional. He does listen to his clients and make sure he is always available for their help. I would highly recommend Mr Arami.
Arami Law represented me in my divorce and they did an outstanding job. They are very knowledgeable and understand fathers' rights. They fought for me to make sure I retain all of my custodial rights. Even the judge in the case complimented them in their professionalism. They made themselves available day and night and even on the weekends. I could not recommend them more.
Legal issues are never easy, so needless to say that having a knowledgeable team on your corner is very much needed. Mr. Arami and his staff are exactly that. He has remained a text/call away from the start. He has handled my very complex yet delicate matter extremely well, I couldn’t be more satisfied. Thank you very much Mr. Arami.
He is honest when he gives you advice. The advice he gave me was to save money, time, and to have a better outcome in my case. I had to go to court for a second time and chose him again.
Kourosh is literally the best attorney ever I highly recommend anyone that is looking for the best attorney to hire him ! he works so hard and very professional, he will keep you updated on everything that is going on and also he’s always available when you need him including weekends. He finalized my case with the outcome that i wanted. Thank you Arami law you deserve more than just 5 stars !
