What is family law?

Family law refers to the legal practice area that focuses on issues related to family relationships, including marriage, divorce, child custody, adoption, spousal support, property division, and more.

How long does a divorce process take?

The duration of a divorce process varies depending on factors such as the complexity of the case, cooperation between the parties, and court availability. On average, uncontested divorces may be finalised within a few months, while contested divorces can take longer, potentially stretching to several months or even years.

How is child custody determined in family law cases?

Child custody decisions are made based on the best interests of the child. Factors such as the child’s age, relationship with each parent, their physical and emotional well-being, and the ability of each parent to provide a stable environment are taken into consideration. The court may also consider the child’s preferences, depending on their age and maturity.

Can I modify child support or custody orders?

Yes, child support and custody orders can be modified under certain circumstances. If there has been a substantial change in circumstances, such as a parent’s income, the child’s needs, or a relocation, you may seek a modification through the court. It’s important to consult with a family lawyer to determine if your situation qualifies for a modification.

Do I need a lawyer for family law matters?

While it’s not legally required to have a lawyer for family law matters, having professional legal representation can greatly benefit you. A family lawyer can provide valuable advice, guide you through the legal process, help protect your rights, and advocate for your best interests, ultimately increasing your chances of achieving a favorable outcome in your case.
