Many families today struggling with family issues feel as though they have no where to turn for help and independent advice. In many instances, their questions can be answered and issues put to rest by speaking to a family law attorney.
What Is Family Law?
Family law is a legal practice area which covers a number of issues that many families face. Some of the most common issues include:
- Child support and custody
- Spousal support
- The division of assets and liabilities
- Paternity cases
- Protection orders
- Termination of parental rights
- Dependence and child neglect
Family Attorneys can also help with prenuptial agreements, emancipation, same sex marriages and annulments.
When Should You Contact A Family Law Attorney?
There are some scenarios when contacting a family law attorney is obvious, such as if you are separating from your spouse or if there is a custody issue. But there are many other circumstances where hiring a family law attorney can help you avoid problems which may otherwise occur later on.
One situation which is seldom considered is if a partner is moving in with you (or you are moving in with them) and you already have a marital home or if you have substantial assets. If you are already in a spousal relationship and you plan to receive money such as an insurance settlement or an inheritance, then a family law attorney should also be contacted.
Some other situations where a family law attorney should be contacted include:
- If you or your spouse own a business
- If you or your spouse are interested in acquiring a part of a business
- If you or your spouse may be receiving a substantial monetary gift from a third party
