Family law is a broad term used to refer to the many statutory laws and previous court decisions that affect families legally. Family law can be thought of as that area of the law which various legal actions are enforced and executed.

Divorce is the most common legal action affecting families. While divorce must legally separate and divide a family and its assets (and debts), divorce does not need to destroy the emotional bonds amongst the family members, nor wipe out the familys lifetime savings. Divorce can be contested (often called litigated divorce) or uncontested (often called an Answer Waiver divorce. Uncontested divorce proceedings are usually handled through mediation process.

Mediation is a meeting of the minds, so to speak, for which the disputing parties and at least one attorney are brought together to cooperatively discuss all of the issues or just particular issues. The parties form their agreements with the assistance of the mediator. The attorney memorializes the agreements for both parties to review. The final agreements are then presented to a court. The parties need not go to court, nor is their confidential information exposed to open court litigation.

Child custody and visitation are perhaps the most important areas of family law, because these legal issues affect the children. In a contested divorce proceeding involving children, the Court will decide which parent will get custody, the amount of child support that will be paid by a party, and the nature and amount of visitation awarded the non-custodial parent. When deciding these issues, the Courts overriding concern is the best interest of the child.

This was in no a small way due to your generous and active assistance in my situation.

No representation is made that the quality of legal services to be performed is greater than the quality of legal services performed by other lawyers.  Also, statements made regarding past recoveries are not an indication of future results.  Every case is different, and regardless of what friends, family or other individuals may say about what a case is worth, each case must be evaluated on its own facts and circumstances as they apply to the law.  The valuation of a case depends on the facts, the injuries, the jurisdiction, the venues, the witnesses, the parties, and the testimony, among other factors.
