Family Law is a vague term, but in truth, it is an area of the law that deals with family matters, including domestic relations, marriage, the treatment of children, and financial issues. Family law is at times closely related to Property Law, and can also turn into criminal cases. Many times a basis of family law is status- i.e. married, guardian, etc. However, there are many realms of family law, to include:

  • marriage
  • adoption
  • children protective proceedings
  • juvenile court matters
  • paternity
  • divorce
  • child custody
  • child support
