Family Law On The Central Coast

Also known as matrimonial law, family law covers all legal and domestic issues within families, including marital, civil, de facto and domestic partnerships.

Generally, family law will cover these areas in terms of the legal separation and end of relationships: divorce, annulment, and legal separation, custody of children, financial support and visitation rights for children, spousal maintenance payments, ancillary relief, and property settlements.
