Family law encompasses the rights and duties among married couples or domestic partners, husbands and wives, mothers and fathers and children. Many areas of family law invoke significant emotional distress and financial uncertainty. It is important for individuals to work with attorneys who are sensitive to the emotional nature of the representation and will assist each client to work through those difficulties.

Child support is the ongoing payment for the financial needs of children of a relationship or marriage that has been terminated, or never existed.
Under marriage, both parties are responsible for supporting one another financially. Alimony is the extension of the obligation to support after separation or divorce. The terms of alimony payments are decided by evaluating a whole host of factors that vary slightly from state to state.
Child custody and visitation
Following a divorce, the family court sets forth terms under which each parent is to take care of their children. These are often highly contested matters and it is important to have a qualified attorney assist you with protecting your rights and the best interests of your children.
Paternity matters concern the genetic testing to determine who a child’s biological father is. Following this determination, the father’s legal responsibilities to the child can be determined.
If changes are warranted between a divorced couple regarding child support payments, visitation rights, custody, or any other matter, they are referred to as modifications. If you feel the terms that exist between you and a former spouse warrant change, it is important to enlist the representation of a family lawyer.
