You are here: Divorce & Family Law

The legal issues relating to families are as simple as applying for a marriage license and as complicated as a child custody case. Family laws run the gamut from the happiest moments in a person's life to the most despairing. Because of the great emotion involved, decisions are sometimes made hurriedly and without considering the legal ramifications. If you are unable to consult with an attorney, it is imperative that you at least familiarize yourself with the laws of your state before embarking on marriage, divorce, adoption, and other matters concerning personal relationships.
