Adoptions are one of the most complex areas of law and the reason why is because it involves parental rights. The right of parenting is covered under the article 1 of our constitution and it’s covered under the right of privacy. So anytime you’re dealing with a constitutional right, you have the most stringent requirements of the law to make sure that rights are not violated.
Pre and Postnuptial Agreements
Pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements are just agreements with both spouse parties, when they are on the same page, to understand how do they want to end their marriage in case the eventualities come and how do they want to make sure that it ends.
Family Law & Appeals
Family Law is probably the most complex area of law there is since many factors go into it and you can’t expect the judge to necessarily be an expert, so there’s a lot of room for errors.
The law recognizes, and we all recognize that times and circumstances change. And that’s why family court exists for divorce law, because unlike a court of law, this is a court of equity and that means that they can always take decisions based on changed circumstances.
