Many times, people find themselves in volatile situations regarding their family members but are hesitant to bring legal action against the party or parties at fault. What you should realize is that sometimes going to family court and taking legal action against one of your family members is the only way you will solve your issues. No one wants to find themselves in this situation but it is a reality that may have to be dealt with.
Some of the issues that can be brought to family court can include matters of divorce, child support, child custody, proof of paternity or DNA testing, visitation rights, legal separation, and restraining orders. It is important to know that crimes committed by a person who is under the age of 18 will be handled in juvenile court.
Family court can provide you with a lot of resources to assist you in your legal matter even after your court date occurs. The judge may order you to attend mediation sessions or have a home visit conducted. These decisions occur on a case by case basis and therefore, it would be valuable to speak with an experienced family law attorney who can help you understand the facts and circumstances surrounding your case.
