What is Family Law?
Family law is more than just divorce – it is the body of law that governs the legal relationships between parents, spouses, children, and other family members. It is not uncommon for Americans to face a wide range of legal problems regarding their family’s health, safety, support, major decisions, and living arrangements.
The attorneys at Levinson & Capuano can help you to identify and resolve many of these family-related issues.
Why Should I Hire a Family Lawyer?
Family law is a very specialized area of law. In fact, most jurisdictions have a separate unified family division with judges situated exclusively to hear all matters affecting a family. It’s important to hire a family law attorney who understands the way the court system works and how your family case fits into it.
