Family law is the term applied to the laws and rules developed regarding family relationships. Family law rules define not only the relationships between members of a family, but also between a family and society as a whole. More than any other area of the law, family law reflects the values society shares regarding how people who are related should treat each other. When you are faced with an important life decision regarding a key family relationship, the advice and assistance of a family law attorney often proves crucial to your understanding of the issues involved, and your satisfaction with the ultimate outcome of your family law matter.
