Family law encompasses all aspects of family relations. Family law includes adoption, child custody and visitation, children’s rights, child support, spousal support (alimony), separation agreements, divorce (dissolution of marriage), marital property division (equitable division), estate planning and trusts, insurance, cohabitation agreements, pre-marital (pre-nuptial) agreements, marriage and other legal issues that involve the family.
Consequences of Family Law:
Issues in family law can be very complicated. For example, divorce issues can be difficult to figure out because when there is no prenuptial agreement signed before the marriage, it can be difficult to figure out who gets the assets. Child custody can also be devastating and lead to a multitude of arguments and disputes. Child custody is the rights and responsibilities that one parent carries towards a child. This not only includes physically keeping a child, but also the obligations for the child’s wellbeing such as authority, religion, education and health care. At times, spouses settle child custody issues among themselves and out of court in a private agreement.
What a Family Law Lawyer can do for you:
A knowledgeable family lawyer can be helpful during a major life event or change. Consulting with a family lawyer can help families settle disputes in the case of divorces, child placements, spousal or child abuse, domestic violence or other major family law issues.
