Family/Domestic

Family-related legal issues are often very emotional. Our lawyers provide honest answers and the objective, experienced perspective necessary to help you solve almost any type of family law problem, including divorce. We strive to make the process as smooth as possible and help you protect your children throughout.

Benckendorf & Benckendorf, P.C., has provided Illinois family law representation for many years. You will work closely with your attorney to find solutions that protect your rights today and in the years ahead.

Our Comprehensive Family Law Practice

We represent people who are seeking a divorce and parents who need a custody agreement. We also understand the needs of unmarried couples who want to establish property rights or who need to protect their rights to their children. In these cases, we often help clients establish paternity so the child and father receive the legal rights they are entitled to.

Our lawyers can represent you in the initial determination of family law orders as well as in modifications. We can also answer questions about enforcing child support and other family law orders.

Do you have more complex family law needs? Our attorneys have the experience to help. We represent grandparents who seek visitation with their grandchildren. We also represent same-sex couples who have civil unions, domestic partnerships or who have recently married. You can also come to our firm with issues involving sophisticated assets or real property ownership.

If you are experiencing domestic abuse, one of our lawyers can help you get a protective order. We know, however, that divorce and custody cases occasionally spark false allegations of domestic violence. We can help people who were falsely accused.
