When people hear the term "family law" they frequently assume the term refers to a divorce. While divorce is certainly one type of family law case, there are actually a wide variety of other legal issues that are also handled by a family law attorney, including:

  • Adoption
  • Parental rights termination
  • Legal Separation
  • Custody and visitation
  • Child support
  • Name Change
  • Paternity
  • Guardianship
  • Conservatorship
  • Protecting special needs children
  • Qualified Domestic Relations Orders

In essence, any legal issue that centers around the family, or that focuses on the relationships between family members, could fall under the family law umbrella. If you are uncertain whether your specific legal issue is considered a family law matter your best course of action is to consult with a family law attorney.
