What is family law and how does it differ from divorce?

Family law is a very broad area of the law that includes many different situations. Divorce is one part of family law concerned with the dissolution of marriage and the issues that arise from ending a relationship. However, family law also includes child custody, visitation, child and spousal support, and many other issues that arise between family members, parents and children.

We are available to assist you with matters related to any of the following practice areas:
