Family Law Matters in Midlothian
Family law or domestic relations law deals with the legal ordering of family relationships. Family units have existed much longer than our modern-day legal system, so you may wonder why the government has to be involved at all. It is true that many families exist and thrive without help or intervention from the court system. However, the State has an interest in the safe-keeping of children, the passage of property, ensuring dependents are supported, etc. Thus, sometimes the Commonwealth must step in and regulate these relationships. And, at other times, it is citizens who implore the courts to step in to settle disputes and make sure their family formations or dissolution occur in an orderly and fair manner. If you are involved in a complex legal matter related to your family, turn to DeFazio Bal. A Midlothian family law and divorce lawyer at our firm is ready to answer your questions at any time.

The Complexities of Familial Relationships
Domestic relations laws are rooted in basic, general principles about family relations and how family members should treat one another. Marriages and parent-child relationships may be viewed through many different lenses, as social, political or economic units. It is a recent trend in the area of family law for policies to be based more on an economic, rather than a moral viewpoint.
