Family law is an area of the law that deals with a wide-variety of family law related issues, including divorce, child support, parenting rights and responsibilities, alimony, adoption, guardianships, paternity, financial issues and property rights.  There are several ways to resolve family law issues.  Parties should consider using the court process, collaborative law, mediation or other settlement methods.
