Separation and family law is a branch of law that deals with family-related issues. It includes marriage, divorce, child custody, adoption and guardianship.The law recognizes that children are entitled to a meaningful relationship with both parents and should not be denied access to either one. The courts often take into consideration the history of contact and quality of contact between children and their parents when making decisions about contact arrangements. Family law can be used in many different situations: when a couple decides to separate, when one person makes a claim for maintenance, or when there is an allegation of domestic violence.
One of the main purposes of family law is to provide a framework for people to live in peace with each other and their families. Contact us today to arrange a consultation.
