Family law matters can often be extremely difficult to deal with. We understand that when you are dealing with a divorce, custody issue, or other family law matter that can be a high-stress situation in which an individual often has a lot at stake.
Family law encompasses some of the most common legal matters that people will deal with in their lives. It includes marriages, civil unions and domestic partnerships, along with everything that goes into terminating these institutions, including divorce, annulment, dissolution of union or partnership, alimony, and property settlements. Family law also includes all the legal matters pertaining to children, particularly adoption, surrogacy, child abuse, child neglect, child support, and child custody or visitation. Matters of paternity are also part of family law.
