The practice of family law encompasses many legal issues, all which Benassi & Benassi, P.C. can handle with confidence and tact:


Whether a divorce is amicable or complicated, our Attorneys simplify the process and ensure your best interests are protected. Grounds for divorce in Illinois can be based on fault or no-fault.

  • Fault – When one or both parties are at fault for the breakdown of the marriage. For example, this includes impotence, adultery, physical or mental cruelty and more.
  • No-Fault – When neither spouse was at fault for the breakup. For example, this includes living separate and apart, irreconcilable differences, failed reconciliation efforts and more.

Child Custody

Based on the needs of the child/children, we help determine the proper custody:

  • Sole Custody – One parent has full custody over the child/children.
  • Joint Custody – The child/children split time between both parents.
  • Legal Custody – Who gets to make decisions on the child/children’s life and well-being.
  • Physical Custody – Where the child/children live daily.

Child Support

Our Lawyers help figure the proper amount a parent should pay for child support based on income and the financial needs of the child/children. So then, such needs include:

  • Monetary Support (Food, Clothing, and Shelter)
  • Health Insurance
  • Basic Education
  • Medical Bills
  • Other Assorted Needs

Visitation Rights

We will fight for your right to see your child/children. Otherwise, we will help keep the other parent accountable when visitation rights are violated.
