Types of Family Law

Family law is a broad area of litigation that covers a wide variety of issues between family members and other relations. Family law attorneys help individuals resolve their differences after they have exhausted all other avenues of mediation.  Whether ending a difficult marriage or establishing a conservatorship, people turn to family law to provide guidance throughout the process. Facilitating adoptions or marriage counseling are some of the benefits of family law as well. 

Family law is divided into a number of very diverse fields.  It is split primarily into two sections, one of which involves divorce and marital issues, and the other that involves custody and family situations. 

Marriage-related family law includes:

  • Divorce
  • Annulments
  • Spousal Support
  • Child Custody
  • Child Support
  • Separation
  • Pre and postnuptial agreements
  • Name Changes, both before and after marriage

Other types of family law include:

  • Dependency law
  • Adoptions
  • Restraining orders
  • Visitation
  • Guardianships
  • Conservatorships (Elder Law)
  • Emancipation
  • Juvenile delinquencies/dependencies

Family law often involves a number of complicated and emotionally charged issues, many of which require an outside mediator to resolve. It takes a committed and compassionate lawyer to provide guidance for families during these types of difficult processes.  Even though the courts assist individuals in small ways during these types of family law issues, an objective and independent lawyer is often needed to help bring an equitable and just resolution to your problems.

If you have any questions about any of the types of family law or if you have a concern that only an experienced professional can address, you need to contact a family law attorney right away.  You are entitled to compassion and guidance during this difficult period so that you can get the closure that you deserve.
