When most people hear the words “family law,” their first thoughts are probably divorce. This association is understandable because the vast majority of family law matters are related to divorce.
However, while family does include divorce proceedings, it also includes many very personal issues, such as:
- Getting married, domestic partnerships, civil unions
- Child adoption
- Child custody
- Paternity testing and father’s rights
- Cohabitation agreements
- Protection orders
- Emancipation of minors
- Alimony and child support
- Division of property
- Reproductive rights
- Prenuptial or postnuptial agreements
- Matters related to estate planning
- And more
As you can see, the list is quite extensive, and knowing your rights during one of these very emotional times is never more important. What makes matters even more challenging is, as you look at the above list, you’ll agree that the outcome of these decisions will have an emotional impact on all involved parties.
Additionally, some decisions may affect a family-run business. The decision to end a marriage. Negotiating child custody. Requesting a paternity test and negotiating your rights as a father. These are all very emotionally charged issues. The decision to hire an attorney to represent you during these times should not be taken lightly or casually. Just imagine losing the guardianship of a loved one or custody of a child, or failing to adopt a child because you decided to go with a lesser experienced firm.
Finding the right law firm to represent your interests in family court proceedings and who can draft the proper important legal documents such as court petitions is very important. You need a competent, caring law firm on your side, one that understands a wide range of family matters rather than just a few.
