Family law refers to the regulations, rules, and court processes and procedures involving the family unit. Some family law matters may be solved without the need of counsel, but others like childhood and custody often requires the expertise and skills of a family attorney. Whether you need a family lawyer or not depend on a number of factors that are specific to your case. For instance, a couple won’t need an attorney to get married, but a lawyer will be required when one party asks the other to sign an agreement of prenuptial.
Among the topics that fall under family law include marriage and living together, divorce and alimony where one spouse may be required to provide financial support to the other after divorce, and child support and custody. A family lawyer may also be required during adoption and foster care as well as domestic violence and child abuse.
