Family law is an area
of law that deals with all aspects of family relations.
Family law encompasses: adoption, child custody and
visitation, children's rights, child support, marriage and
pre-marital agreements, separation
agreements, divorce (sometimes called dissolution of
marriage), spousal support (alimony), marital property
division, elder law matters, general estate
planning, cohabitation agreements, and other legal issues
pertinent to the family.
Family law courts generally hear cases pertaining to dissolution of marriage, legal separation of the parties, nullity of marriage, child custody, child and spousal support, elder law legal issues, domestic violence petitions, and other family related legal issues.
Each case is different and carries its own set of circumstances which must be taken into consideration by a competent legal counsel. For specific questions about your case, please contact us.
