Dividing parental responsibilities between parents who have made the decision to separate or divorce is difficult. Both parents have a legal obligation to support their child, although one parent may be given primary custody and decision making power over their child (and the other ordered to pay child support).
Parents need to devise a parenting plan that is made in the best interests of the child. If parents cannot do this – typically because they cannot agree – a judge will be tasked with making the determination.
Determining the best interests of the child can be a difficult thing to do, and in many cases, what one parent fully believes is within the child’s best interests, the other does not. For this reason, the state of Illinois has compiled a list of criteria that must be weighed to determine a child’s best interest. Found in 750 ILCS 5/602.7, these include:
Knowing what a court is looking for during a child custody determination can be confusing and emotional, and if you are seeking full parental responsibilities over your child, you may not know where to start. At Arami Law, we can help you to understand Illinois’ child custody laws and how to present your case to a court.

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.

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.
