Many different legal issues can affect a family, from those arising out of divorce proceedings to those concerning children, like paternity issues or child support. Whether you need assistance with financial matters in a divorce like property division or support, or have questions about child custody issues like the allocation of parental responsibilities or parenting time more specifically, one of the family lawyers at our firm can assist you.
At Arami Law, we help families in Hyde Park with many different types of family law cases, including but not limited to the following:
Often family law issues arise during a divorce, but you may need a family law attorney in many other kinds of circumstances, too. For example, an unmarried parent may want to determine paternity for purposes of having parenting time or obtaining child support. In some family situations, grandparents may want to have legal access to their grandchildren and may need the assistance of a family law attorney to do so. Our attorneys can help with your family law needs.
Many family law matters happen because of divorce. Under the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act (IMDMA), if you want to file for divorce, you do not have to have fault-based grounds. To be clear, Illinois is a “no-fault” state when it comes to divorce. Accordingly, the party that files the petition for the dissolution of marriage only needs to make clear that there are irreconcilable differences and that the spouses cannot repair their relationship.
When a couple gets divorced, property is classified as “marital” or “separate,” and marital property is divided according to the theory of equitable distribution.
Many people seek advice from a family law attorney in Hyde Park when there is an issue involving child custody or child support.
Illinois now uses the terms “parental responsibilities” and “parenting time” instead of the terms “child custody” and “visitation.” Parents who can come to an agreement about how they will share important decision-making responsibilities and parenting time for their children can develop a parenting plan that allocates these parental responsibilities. When the parents cannot agree, a court will allocate parental responsibilities.
Child support is determined according to the “income shares” model, which means both parents contribute to the financial support obligation. The court determines the monthly amount based on the parents’ combined incomes and apportions the amount based on income, number of nights with the children, and other factors.
If you have questions about a family law issue in Illinois, our Hyde Park family law attorneys can help. Contact Arami Law for more information.

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
