All about family law:
1. Family lawyers can help you fight for custody of a child
Parents who split up or divorce often turn to a family lawyer for help in order to fight for legal guardianship rights of their children. While in other circumstances concerned family members such as grandparents, aunts, uncles and siblings of a child, may go to court in order to contest for legal guardianship of a child that they don’t believe is being properly cared for.
In the event that you split from your partner and your partner tries to stop you from visiting your children, without a good reason, you’ll also be able to enlist the services of a family lawyer, in order to contest for regular visitation rights.
2. A family lawyer can help you create a will
Regardless of how small or large your family is or your current age, it’s a wise idea to see a family lawyer in order to create a will, that will ensure that the right individuals will inherit your assets, should you pass away.
If you have multiple descendants, it’s even more important to get a will that you’re comfortable with, drawn up to ensure that your descendants don’t get into squabbles after your passing over money. As at the end of the day money isn’t as important as the love that your kids and grandkids should share for one another.
3. A family lawyer can help you create a family trust
If you want to protect family property from falling into the wrong hands, you may also be able to benefit from talking to your chosen family lawyer about placing your property or properties in a family trust. Should you choose to make this decision, if one of your kids has a nasty divorce with their spouse, their spouse won’t be able to claim your family property, which has been placed in a trust as part of their divorce settlement.
So while you should be able to trust your kids and your grandkids, it’s fair to be a bit skeptical about the trustworthiness of your descendants’ spouses.
4. A family lawyer can help you file for a divorce
If you choose to get married and one day decide that you’re unhappy in your marriage and would like to file for a divorce, you’ll also be able to entrust your family lawyer with the task of settling your divorce papers.
4. A family lawyer can create prenuptial agreements for weddings
If you haven’t tied the knot yet and plan to get married some day, you’ll also be able to turn to a family lawyer to create a prenup which will protect the assets which you accumulated before your wedding.
Hopefully, you now understand some of the many tasks which a family lawyer can help you manage over the course of your life!
