What is Family Law?
Family law is broad and can present itself in other areas of law; it is also sometimes complex to navigate. Typically, family law covers the following matters:
- Pre-nuptial agreements;
- Cohabitation agreements;
- Domestic relationships (unmarried couples);
- Divorce, annulment, separation agreements, or post-nuptial agreements;
- The division of matrimonial property (property acquired throughout the marriage by one or both parties);
- Domestic Violence and Emergency Protection Orders (also known as Restraining Orders);
- Child custody and access;
- Spousal support, child support, and adult interdependent relationship support
