Family law is a specific legal area that concerns any family or domestic relationship matters. This can include a number of issues related to marriage and domestic partnerships. A large part of family law deals with divorce, or the legal termination of marriage. In many cases, divorce also entails additional legal matters, including visitation, child support, child custody, spousal support, and property distribution.
