Family law is very complex recently than it has been in years and the law has continued to change in 2015. Having adequate legal representation is crucial to navigating and being successful regardless of which aspects of this law that you require.

Five Reasons

Law in general is complicated and changes often so it requires extensive training, resources, time and manpower to conduct administrative and research functions, and insight to understand the court system and protocols. To the average person, family law is very confusing and can be emotional and well as financially draining. This is why having an attorney who is experienced and who values your trust with all legal aspects to your adult life is a serious matter that you should carefully consider.

Here are 5 reasons why every single person needs a family law attorney:

Living together – the statistics on Americans’ personal lives has shifted over the years to include those who have never married to be more than 30.4 percent, that as of the US Census Bureau for 2011, nearly 12 percent of couples living together have never been married or are cohabitating, and as of 2014, the number of unmarried Americans is now over 50 percent – opting to live together without marriage. Our lives become more complicated and intertwined regardless of our choices and so do the laws that govern us and our responsibilities as adults too.

In any case, cohabitating is very similar to a marriage because you and your partner could have legal ties to purchases, investments, mortgages, loans, and many other contract vehicles. This is why family law attorney’s such as Kevin Attkisson advise you to get draft up a cohabitation agreement so that you both are protected before moving in together.

Domestic partnership – for many of the millennial generation, domestic partnerships or civil unions are preferred over marriage as the non-traditional arrangement of choice. Keep in mind that although the domestic partnership is typically a legal-recognized relationship for non-married couples and compared to married couples who have similar benefits, not all states recognize this type of union from a legal viewpoint.

You should consider all aspects to your relationship in regards to the legal implications, potentially. For example, what happens when you are faced with having to resolve the union or if your domestic partnership abruptly comes to an end, what are your rights? It was this year that the legalization of same-sex marriage made domestic partnerships less relevant for many couples, they typically offer benefits related to health insurance, life insurance, death benefits, sick and family leave, and state tax treatment.

Domestic violence – unfortunately the statistics do not lie and are more alarming than ever. There are certain times throughout the year in which this type of violence becomes more prevalent such as during the Super Bowl game in January each, after a company-sponsored holiday party of some type, and during Independence Day. Abuse and violence of any kind is not tolerable regarding the law and morally not acceptable – for instance, children are abused, spouses and partners may be continuously abused, and senior citizens have been abused and neglected by family members and care takers alike.

This type of violence most recently has expanded to now include cyber bullying or cyber stalking and not just in the physical world but virtually too. Sometimes it’s the social media platforms which can lead to real-life violence – for example, a woman whose avatar in Second Life was discovered by her real-world husband because she was having a virtual affair was later discovered murdered by her husband. In another strange case, one spouse had virtually killed off his spouse’s avatar and it went to court because he was being charged with virtual murder. More often than not it’s not only the physical scars that a show outward sign of violence but it’s the mental anguish and degrading verbal abuse which does the greatest damage to our psyche and our soul.

Adoption – there have been certain times in which the geo-political environment had emotionally moved some Americans to adopt children from overseas and there are couples who have decided to take a foreign child and bring them to our country so that they may have a better life. The adoption process can be emotionally and legally complex. This is why the decision to adopt must be very carefully considered from all aspects and legal counsel is highly encouraged especially when dealing with foreign governments, laws, courtesies, and customs.

Domestic adoption can mean that the couple has decided to bring a teen or adolescent into their home with the same rights and responsibilities as any parent. Some have decided to continue the process and children have changed their name too and others have done so because of emancipation laws in which the teen has proved to the court that she or he is fully capable of living an adult-life in all aspects.

Marriage law – many of us are probably well aware of the processes to getting married and sharing the financial burdens and joint ownership of typical assets. Moreover, the virtue of being married carries a lot of responsibilities and, depending on which state you live in, can become burdensome than that of a single person. For example, some couples may wish to draft up a prenuptial agreement wherein they convey only some but not all of their property going into the marriage and, if they divorce at some later date, they are guaranteeing that they keep what they brought in. For some in the military, having a power of attorney provides one spouse with all legal representation of the other spouse when deployed overseas. If the spouses end up divorcing later and if this occurs after being for at least 10 years, the other spouse will be entitled to almost 50 percent of all investments, retirement income, and much more.

It all started when my husband cheated on me with another woman unknowing to him that the woman is a wizard, the woman castes a spell on my husband which made my husband change his feelings towards me and the kids and broke our 6 years marriage. i was confused and stressed because of the pains of being a single mother, when i called a friend and explained my marital challenges to her, she instructed and directed me to contact a great powerful spell caster called Dr. Ugo Wonders living in Florida. i contacted Dr. Ugo and explained my problems, he assured me his help and it was 100% guaranteed. i provided the materials for the spell and in 48 hours, after Dr Ugo Wonders of finished casting the spell, my husband was free from the evil woman spell and he came back home to us a day after begging us to forgive him. i was so shocked and short of words and here i am today happily testifying so the world can know how this great man helped me with his real powerful spell.

I am MRS COLLINS, from CANADA, I promise to share this testimony all over the world once my Husband return back to me, and today with all due respect i want to thank DR AKHERE for bringing joy and happiness to my relationship and my family. I want to inform you all that there is a spell caster that is real and genuine. I never believed in any of these things until i loosed my husband, I required help until i found a great spell caster, And he cast a love spell for me, and he assured me that I will get my husband back in two days after the spell has been cast. Three days later, my phone rang, and so shockingly, it was my husband who has not called me for past 6 months now, and made an apology for the heart break, and told me that he is ready to be my back bone till the rest of his life with me. DR AKHERE released him up to know how much i loved and wanted him. As I`m writing this testimony right now I`m the most happiest woman on earth and me and my husband is living a happy life and our love is now stronger than how it were even before our break up. So that`s why I promised to share my testimony all over the universe. All thanks goes to DR AKHERE for the excessive work that he has done for me. please brothers and sisters if you are ppassing throuhg any kind of problem contact this great sspell caster
