There are many different types of law. Family law, which also includes divorce law, is a branch of the legal system that is growing. What are all of these family lawyers doing? Continuing Education of the Bar or CEB looks at just what lawyers in a family law firm do all day.
Family lawyers meet a wide variety of families with all backgrounds in a day.
However, these families all have one thing in common: they are all going through a crisis. This could be a divorce, a child custody battle, getting an adoption, getting a restraining order, or emancipating a girl from an underage marriage.
Family lawyers are not judges. They also keep anything said to them in confidence. This makes their offices a safe place to speak your mind. Their job is to get you through the legal system to resolve your family’s crisis and move on with your life.
