What Is Family Law?

Family law is the area of civil law that deals with familial relationships. Family law is composed of a body of state statutes and case law precedents. The parties involved in family law cases are not always blood relatives or married.

Most family law cases arise from the end of a marriage or relationship where property or other assets need division. However, the ends of marriages are not the only time in which family law attorneys represent clients.

A family law practice may include, but is not limited to, the following types of matters:

  • Annulment;
  • Divorce;
  • Legal separation;
  • Wills and estates;
  • Adoption;
  • Paternity;
  • Emancipation;
  • Child custody and support;
  • Spousal maintenance and alimony;
  • Domestic abuse;
  • Prenuptial agreements; and
  • Postnuptial agreements.

Family law attorneys may represent a client in court at a hearing or trial or outside of the courtroom during some form of negotiations or arbitration. Sometimes family law attorneys draft critical legal documents on their client’s behalf without any judicial involvement.
