Getting divorced is significantly more complicated than getting married as you are tasked with dividing the life you built together. When you add in the emotions you are likely feeling during divorce, it is no surprise that this process can be overwhelming. Fortunately, Arami Law is here to help you through every step of your divorce case.
While the issues in a divorce can vary widely from case to case, the following are some of the common issues that we regularly address and resolve for our clients:
Division of assets – Under Illinois law, all marital property must be divided and distributed equitably between the spouses in a divorce. “Equitably” does not mean “equally,” and a lot of consideration should go into how property and assets are divided. This can become more complex if you own a home, have substantial assets, or own a family business.
Division of debts – Just as property must be equitably distributed, so must marital debts. Debts incurred during the marriage will most likely count as marital debt, even if the debt is only in one spouse’s name. Mortgages, car loans, and credit cards will all have to be divided fairly between the spouses. We can help to argue that you should not be responsible for your spouse’s student loans or other separate debts and can work to ensure you leave your marriage with as little liability as possible.
Parental responsibilities – After a divorce, both parents still have parental rights to see their children and to be involved in important decisions regarding their children. Most couples will share responsibilities over the children, which means they have to determine a schedule for parenting time and will need to determine how they are going to share in making decisions regarding school, religion, healthcare, and other important matters.
Child support – Just as parents still have rights after divorce, they also still have the responsibility to financially support their children. In many cases, the court will order one parent to provide financial support to the other to contribute to the everyday costs of parenting. While Illinois has strict child support guidelines, we will review your case to make sure your support determination is fair.
Spousal support – If there is going to be a significant disparity in the financial situations of you and your spouse, the court may order one of you to pay spousal support to the other. Whether you need financial support until you can support yourself or whether your spouse has requested support, we will negotiate to ensure any spousal support awards are not unfair.

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.
