Family Law is an Umbrella Term

Family law covers areas of law that govern the relationships between family members, including divorce, annulment, adoption, child custody, child support, spousal support, visitation, paternity, protective orders, and fathers’ rights.

Areas of Practice Covered Under Family Law

The term “family law” is used to distinguish those statutes from other areas of law such as probate (which addresses the handling of property after death), criminal law (which addresses crimes prosecuted by the state), or corporate law (which deals with the structuring and organization of businesses).
