What Is Family Law?
Family law is a body of rules, regulations, and legal statutes that govern the rights and responsibilities of individuals who share a domestic connection. Typically, family law controls marriages, divorces, and childcare and custody.
Some topics that fall under the family law umbrella include:
- Prenuptial agreements
- Domestic partnerships
- Cohabitation (living together)
- Reproductive rights
- Parental rights and liability
- Foster care
- Surrogacy and artificial conception
- Emancipation of minors
- Child custody
- Child abuse
- Domestic violence
Anyone can start a family on their own – sometimes without involving the court at all. When disagreements arise or individuals want to pursue legal rights and responsibilities, they may need to go through official channels.
Cases We Handle
Most people associate family law with divorce and child custody cases. Although these are some of the most common cases we handle, we also help families with guardianship cases and can handle more positive cases, like name changes and adoptions.
Letting an attorney into your family life can be challenging, but some family matters require legal assistance. Sometimes, divorce is what’s best for the family – and divorce cases can be as simple as making a contract into a new agreement. When spouses disagree, we act in the best interest of you and your children (if you have them) and fight to protect your legal rights and assets.
Similarly, we act in your children’s best interests in all child custody matters. We help parents arrange the custody and visitation agreements that work best for each family. In some cases, it is better for the child to spend more time with one parent, and we help show this to the court if and when we need to.
Family can be messy, but the legal system is meant to add clarity – not more confusion.
Our Oklahoma City family lawyer can answer all your questions and help you smooth over even the most contested divorces and child custody disagreements.
Why Hire an Attorney?
The American Bar Association (ABA) recommends consulting a lawyer about major life events or changes. An attorney can help you understand the laws surrounding your legal concern and protect your rights.
In a divorce (with children), for example, your lawyer can help you determine whether or not you have grounds for a divorce, how your assets will be divided, who gets custody of any children you share with your partner, and how child support is determined.
Because these issues are often emotionally charged, lawyers can help keep family law matters civil and productive.
