Family law can affect your life through divorce and beyond

While criminal defense law may be featured most heavily in popular Hollywood films, family law is an extremely important legal practice for many individuals and families. The decisions made during and after a divorce case do not only affect the divorcing couple, but also any children born from the marriage, as well as grandparents who may or may not be able to maintain a relationship with their grandchildren. Family law is a complex, multifaceted legal practice that can completely alter the course of a child's life.

One study claims that, independent of income or debt, couples who argue about money for whatever reason are more likely to divorce. So even though January is over, there are lessons about divorce that we could all learn from.
