What is Family Law?

 6 total views

Family law is relevant if you are getting a divorce or looking to deal with legal issues on family related issues including child custody, adoption and family dispute resolution. You may also consult a family lawyer on issues regarding pre- and post-nuptial agreements, civil union, same-sex marriage and family mediation.

Example

Claire and Lawrence have a child named Clarence, aged seven. The two have lived in separate houses for the past five years and are seeking divorce. Clarence grew up most of his life under his mother’s care. His mother struggled to make ends meet by taking up various temporary, low-paying jobs, while his father had a six-figure salary but had anger management problems and rarely came home before midnight. When talking with a lawyer, Clarence said “I don’t want to leave Mommy.”
