Divorce is a major transition in anyone’s life, and it is not something you attempt to navigate on your own. If you are facing a divorce, it’s time to take action, and because your parental and financial rights are involved, working closely with an experienced Glenview divorce lawyer from the outset represents the best possible path forward.
Your divorce will require you to resolve the following terms between you and your divorcing spouse (as applicable):
If you and your divorcing spouse are able to negotiate terms that are in accordance with Illinois law, you can bypass the court’s intervention on these important matters. If not, you’ll need the court to weigh in on those that remain unresolved.
Parental responsibilities divide into decision-making power and parenting time. Decision-making power is all about who will be making major decisions on behalf of your children – such as those that involve where they’ll go to school, the medical care they will receive, and their religious upbringing. This decision-making power can be allotted in whatever way works for you and your children’s other parent.
Parenting time, on the other hand, refers to the schedule by which you and your ex will divide your time with your children. You can devise a schedule that divides your time fairly evenly or a schedule in which one of you can become the primary residential parent (with whom your children live the majority of the time).
The higher earner among you is very likely to be required to pay child support to the other parent. This is because both parents share a responsibility to support their kids financially and because child support is calculated in accordance with each parent’s financial ability to pay.
Those assets that you and your spouse acquired over the course of your marriage are classified as marital property, and upon divorce, they must be divided in a manner that is deemed fair – or equitable – given the circumstances. This division is often very complicated, and factors, such as high assets, business ownership, and significant separate holdings, can make it more so.
Alimony is intended to help balance any financial inequities caused by divorce. For example, if one of you has neither the assets nor the job skills to support yourself moving forward, but the other has the financial means to help, the court may order alimony payments to help offset this financial discrepancy.

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
