Family Law – Overview

Family Law, also known as Domestic Relations, is the broad area of law covering most legal topics that deal with families and relationships. Some of the areas of law included are divorce (and dissolution), alimony/spousal support, paternity, child custody and parental rights, child support, and grandparent or third-party custody and visitation.

Family law is often emotionally and physically trying on everyone, especially when dealing with children. And domestic relations courts often move in slow and measured steps to assure children are properly protected and cared for – this means a divorce involving children can take over a year to complete.
