Family law comprises laws that determine the legal responsibilities between individuals who share a domestic connection created usually by blood or marriage but includes a few others as well.
Most Family law cases are related to the termination of a romantic relationship or marriage. Lawyers can help parties involved with issues concerning division of property, alimony, child custody, visitation, support, annulment or even special rights between same-sex couples.
Family law also seeks to protect individuals against emotional or physical abuse. The definition of what is abuse and what is fair is often interpretive and the skill of your attorney can give you a big advantage in being able to present your view point to the court accurately. In addition experienced attorneys are also helpful in uncovering hidden assets, legal precedents in your favour and other critical facts that help you become aware of your own legal rights and limitations.
In addition, Family law also covers issues relating to rights of grandparents, gay and LGBT relations, adoption, paternity as well as termination of parental rights
