Family Law and domestic relations is a broad category of law dealing with a multitude of issues and litigation. This does include divorce; however, it also includes issues before and after divorce and many that are not the result of divorce. These issues may include a prenuptial or post-nuptial agreement for individuals concerned with protecting their assets during a possible divorce; issues of contempt to enforce orders of the court not being followed by one or both of the parties; modifications of orders dealing with custody visitation and/or support both child support and spousal alimony; issues of paternity and custody necessary to determine the biological parent and the support obligations that are inherent in this action; adoptions whether consensual or not, which can be brought by a relative; guardianships and power of attorneys, necessary for temporary arrangements; protective orders necessary as the result of domestic violence; juvenile matters of dependency and deprivation, which can be private actions or actions initiated by the state through the Department of Family and Children Services (DFCS); and legitimation actions with all of the issues of visitation, custody and support necessary for preserving the legal rights of fathers.
