A famous judge once said family law was best described as “Tummy Law,” because many cases were decided based on what judges “felt in their gut.” This is probably the way judges continue to decide family law cases, because family laws are about how family members should treat each other – even if a relationship is ending as in cases of divorce. Specific issues regarding family law often include marriage, pre and post-nuptial agreements, divorce, paternity, adoption, child custody, child support & visitation.
