What can a family law attorney do for you?

When our readers hear the term “family law” they likely think about all aspects of divorce, including child custody, child support, alimony and property division. But they may be interested to learn that family law actually encompasses a lot more than just these few topics. While divorce is definitely a big part of family law, legal issues related to your family can come about in a wide variety of ways.

A family law attorney may play an essential role in getting a restraining order against a family member that has been violent. This is definitely not a legal topic that many are knowledgeable in and of course we all hope that we never have to deal with such a situation. But when violence does happen in a family, an attorney can help protect you from that violence through legal means.

Another topic that family law attorneys may deal with is adoption. The adoption process can be extremely complicated and can come in many forms, from international adoption to stepparent adoption. Having an attorney guide you through the process can be extremely helpful.

Family law also encompasses guardianships of minor children. In some cases a child may need a guardian and an attorney can advocate for that child or the family members involved in the request.

Beyond that, family law attorneys can help individuals work through same-sex marriage issues, create a solid prenuptial agreement, or protect a client’s rights as they relate to paternity. While divorce is certainly an important aspect of our practice, we can help families deal with a diverse range of family law issues.
