Filing for divorce can be a complicated and difficult process in Illinois, and it is often one of the most difficult experiences a person will go through. Regardless of whether you are anticipating a contentious divorce process or you are on relatively good terms with your ex, it is essential to have an experienced Oak Brook divorce lawyer on your side who will advocate for you. Our firm has years of experience representing clients in divorces in Illinois, and we can speak with you today about getting started on your case.
The divorce process begins in Oak Brook when a party files a petition for the dissolution of marriage. From filing to handling modifications, our firm provides a wide variety of services surrounding Illinois divorce, including but not limited to the following:
The Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act (IMDMA) only allows spouses to go through a no-fault divorce. Accordingly, you should not plan to allege grounds for divorce. Instead, the IMDMA only requires a finding that irreconcilable differences exist between the couple. The court has to deem those differences are such that no attempts to overcome them would work out or be in anyone’s best interests.
When the parties have been living separate and apart for at least six months before the divorce filing, then there is an irrebuttable presumption that the “irreconcilable differences” requirement has been met.
In Oak Brook divorces, all property is classified as marital or separate property, and all marital property is divided between the spouses based on the theory of equitable distribution. The court will consider a variety of factors to determine what kind of division of marital property is fair or equitable to both spouses.
Only marital property is divided in a divorce. Separate property typically includes assets and debts acquired before the marriage, and property acquired after the marriage through an inheritance or a gift.

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.
