Family Law is the branch of the judicial system that was designed to deal with the issues that arise within the family unit or domestic relationships. Throughout the United States, it is the family courts that often have the heaviest caseloads, many jurisdictions tackle issues from gaining custody of a child to dealing with the proper procedure of finalizing a divorce.

Within the judicial system, family law extends from the wealthiest families to the poorest. No social or economic class is spared the family court system when any area of family law is involved. Below are some of the many different areas of regulation attached to family law:

When two people wish to get married, they have to go through family law to get the proper license to mary. This applies to civil unions as well as domestic partnerships. A civil union provides same-sex couples the rights, benefits, and responsibilities similar to marriages of opposite-sex couples. A Domestic Partnerships recognizes relationships between two people who live together but have chosen not to enter traditional marriage, common-law marriage, or a civil union.

Family law also deals with the legal issues that can arise during marriage. Family courts will step in when married couples physically hurt one another. Family courts oversee the adoption processes and settle surrogacy issues.

Family courts will see that property settlements and alimony payments are arranged. In the United States, the responsibilities of the parents are dealt with under family law, such as custody hearings, visitation rights, and child support awards.
