Family law as a definition covers a wide range of legal processes, including prenuptial and postnuptial agreements and issues involving paternity.

Prenuptial Agreements

The purpose of a prenuptial agreement is to serve as a substitute for the disposition of assets which would be imposed by a state upon death or divorce. Parties can also make their own agreements regarding alimony or spousal support.

Postnuptial Agreements

The purpose of a postnuptial agreement is very much the same as a prenuptial agreement. The prenuptial agreement is signed PRIOR to marriage. The postnuptial agreement is signed AFTER the parties have married.


When parents are not married, it is possible to obtain orders from a court regarding custody and child support when one parent files a complaint to establish parental relationship.
