Family Law & What it Entails
Family law, as the name implies, revolves around legal issues regarding family relationships such as divorces, adoptions, emancipations, prenuptial agreements, and so on. Our Burke attorneys have a thorough understanding of all family law matters so you can rest easy.
Situations regarding family law typically involve a lot of emotions on all sides whether it be divorcing a long-time spouse, adopting a new child, or emancipating one’s self from a family. It can all be very overwhelming. Our Burke family lawyers will be able to objectively and effectively help you with all your family law needs in Fairfax County or anywhere else in Northern and Central Virginia.
These are a few terms you should know regarding family law:
- Prenuptial agreement: An agreement made by a marrying couple before the marriage. It determines the ownership of their respective assets should the marriage end.
- Emancipation: The legal process whereby a minor becomes self-sufficient and independent. An emancipated individual is responsible for their own welfare and the former parents are not.
- Divorce: When a marriage ends and the assets are settled. Attorneys are typically able to negotiate between the parties and settle out of court, but not always.
- Adoption: When an individual legally joins a new family. This is an exceedingly complicated process and family law attorneys can significantly help with the proceedings.
