Family Law refers to rules, regulations and court procedures involving the family unit.
These matters include family members’ financial responsibilities, arrangements regarding children, eligibility, rights of same-sex couples to get married, divorce and adopting a child. Domestic violence and child abuse are also included within this section.

When Do I Need a Family Law Solicitor?
This will depend on the specific factors to your case.
You would not necessarily need a solicitor when getting married, but may be required should one of the parties ask the other to sign a prenuptial agreement. You can often also benefit from hiring a solicitor when dealing with divorce, child support and arrangements regarding children.
Emotions can run high during divorces. Hiring a Solicitor for their legal knowledge and skills, as well as negotiating with the other party to resolve difficult issues can be invaluable.
