Family Law


Family Law involves legal relationships between individuals as married couples, parent and child, as socio-political force and economic unit. The legal facets of these relationships involve vast areas of law such as the statutory regulation of marriage and divorce, equitable remedies, property and support rights, tort law, criminal law, and constitutional law. Marriage between individuals is more than a personal commitment to each other but its status is rooted on contract and established law and also becomes a statement of who we are as a society. Governments have considered this institution to be of the highest interest to society and the general welfare of the state. Our Supreme Court of the United States eloquently and powerfully described marriage and the government’s role “as creating the most important relation in life, as having more to do with the morals and civilization of a people than any other institution.” Maynard v. Hill, 125 U.S. 190, 205, 8 S.Ct. 723, 726, 31 L. Ed. 654 (1888).
