Family Law

What is Family Law? Family law is an area of law that focuses on family relationships, encompassing a broad range of legal topics involving marriage, domestic relations, and children. Family law can be one of the most emotional areas of law, as it deals with matters of the heart which are very personal.

Family matters can be extremely stressful and often expose family members to a wide range of emotions and intense feelings that may be painful or difficult to deal with, especially when there are minor children involved. During this moment of confusion and despair, it is important to hire legal counsel as a trusted advisor.

Most, who contemplate on leaving a relationship or confronting a family issue, frequently have questions or concerns such as:

  • Do I need a family lawyer?
  • How long does it take to get a divorce?
  • What is the process to getting a divorce?
  • Can you get a divorce without your spouse’s consent?
  • Who gets the house in a divorce?
  • How are child custody and visitation established?
  • How do you survive financially after divorce?
  • How does alimony work?
  • How is child custody determined?
  • How is child support determined?

“Generally, there are no lightning bolts or magical signs that tell you when it is time to get divorced. When
the bad starts outweighing the good on a consistent basis, you may feel that taking the next step
is appropriate. It is a very personal decision and most likely should be arrived upon
with the help of some kind of counseling or support.” – Laura Wasser
