What is Family Law?

What is Family Law?

Print Article

Family Law, or Matrimonial Law, refers to all of the common issues that generally arise when two individuals separate. These issues include:

  • Divorce;
  • Division of Family Property;
  • Parenting Time (child access and residence) and Decision Making Responsibilities for the Children (child custody);
  • Child Support; and
  • Spousal Support.

Family Law can also apply to issues that do not necessarily arise when individuals separate, such as adoptions and Interspousal Agreements (commonly called “Separation Agreements”, “Prenuptial Agreements”, or “Co-Habitation Agreements”).  

The lawyers at W Law LLP have extensive experience in all of these areas.
