family law

“Family Law”, also referred to as matrimonial law, is a branch of the law addressing family matters and domestic relations. This area comprises a diverse range of subjects, including but not limited to marriage, civil unions, domestic partnerships; adoption and surrogacy; child abuse and child abduction; and termination of relationships and associated matters, like divorce, annulment, property settlements, alimony, child custody and visitation rights, child support, and alimony awards. Family law also covers areas like juvenile adjudication, paternity testing, and paternity fraud.

This list is not exhaustive, and the specifics can vary depending upon the jurisdiction. In many jurisdictions, particularly in the United States, family courts often have the most crowded dockets, representing litigants from all social and economic classes.
