SK&H and Family Law
Many people think of the term “family law” as a polite euphemism for “divorce law,” but the field actually covers much more than divorce. Family law issues include all aspects of marriage planning, dissolution of marriage, custody of children, family law mediation, and LGBT family law. Questions about these terms are common, and finding help can be confusing.
Even if you’re not facing pressing legal action, speaking with a family law attorney may help. Many clients come to our firm simply seeking guidance and family law information for their futures. They come to see us just to explore their options, should they consider a divorce in the future. Some of them never come back, and that’s okay. Speaking with an attorney isn’t about immediately taking legal action. It’s about helping you reach peace of mind and preparing you for the future and any family law issues that may arise.
No matter what the circumstances of your case may be, your primary concern should be finding an attorney who can assist you in making informed choices while facing some of the most important decisions in your life. This isn’t a decision that should be rushed. You’ll want to find an attorney you can trust, one who is caring, capable, and confident. Once you’ve found an attorney whom you’re comfortable with, navigating the family law system will be much less daunting.
