The often surprising roles a family law practice fills

Most people assume a family law legal practice is all about divorce and not much else. While divorce is a large area for attorneys who practice family law, it only scratches the surface of the ways in which an attorney working in this field helps families in North Carolina.

Along with the important tasks related to divorce or domestic violence family law attorneys perform, these lawyers also help bring joy into the lives of North Carolina families.

Here are some roles a family law attorney can fill outside of divorce:

-- Facilitating adoption or a foster parent situation-- Advocating for a client's reproductive rights-- Same-sex marriages-- Emancipation of minors-- Advocating for a client's right to alimony-- Help creating prenuptial agreements-- Assistance with alternative dispute resolution

As far as the traditional elements of family law, attorneys provide one-stop solutions to some of more stressful needs of families. For example, when divorce is on the table, it is a great idea to acquire an attorney who can help with the divorce itself and its associated issues such as:

-- Child support-- Child custody-- Division of property-- Legal separations-- Visitation agreements-- Separation agreements-- Child abuse-- Domestic violence

Although it is true that couple can get divorced without attorney involvement, many find it difficult to do so. The high emotional element combined with each spouse's desire to protect his or her rights can often complicate an otherwise amicable split. Using attorneys can lessen this effect while also preserving the rights of both clients.

Regardless of why you may need family law assistance, take comfort in knowing that you can find a North Carolina attorney who will work toward your best interests no matter what.
