Types of Family Cases

Family law attorneys focus on a broad range of legal issues that arise between families. Attorneys who practice family law can handle divorce, adoption, child custody, paternity, and divorce cases. While many family law lawyers represent clients who are going through a divorce, most have experience in a number of other practice areas as well. Family law requires an attorney to have extensive knowledge and skills in a range of legal areas, such as: 

  • Negotiating and Drafting Contracts 
  • Pleadings 
  • Litigating Contested Matters 
  • Resolving Disputes 
  • Counseling Clients 

Some lawyers who practice family law represent victims or perpetrators of domestic violence in civil protection order proceedings and defend clients accused of domestic violence in criminal proceedings. Adoption and guardianship, juvenile delinquency, child abuse, and neglect cases can also be handled by a family law attorney 

Matters associated with family law require unique legal strategies to meet the needs of each individual case. For this reason, a successful attorney will have exceptional interpersonal skills and need to be adept in managing emotionally volatile situations. You should consult with a family law attorney if you need help with any of the following issues: 

  • Marriage Disputes 
  • Adoption 
  • Child Custody 
  • Domestic Partnerships 
  • Emancipation of Minors 
  • Paternity Dispute 
  • Guardianship 
  • Child Abuse
  • Divorce 
  • Reproductive Rights 
  • Domestic Violence 
  • Parental Rights and Liability 
  • Foster Care 
  • Surrogacy and Artificial Conception
