Lawyers Specialized in Family Law

What is Family Law?

Family law consists of the set of rules and legal institutions that attempt to govern the complex world of the personal and material relationships of the members of a family, between themselves and with third parties. These relationships originate in marriage and kinship.

Family law is in a constant state of transformation: the emergence of new family models -single-parent families, blended or reconstituted families, those formed by unmarried heterosexual or homosexual couples, and even other cohabitation relationships that lack the affectio maritalis that is typical of marital or couples relationships and are based solely on mutual aid or assistance-, has forced our legal system to evolve constantly to tackle new challenges in Family Law.
