Family Law

Family law regulates the legal relationships of people who are connected to each other by marriage, civil unions, family and relations, or where there is a custodianship, trusteeship or legal guardianship in place. Especially with the complicated nature of this area of law, it is highly recommended that you contact a lawyer for legal advice.

For example, divorce is something that we all hope to avoid. However, it may be the only reasonable option sometimes. If you are ever in this situation, remember that you have rights under the law - including an equitable distribution of the marital property. We can help to ensure that in the event of a divorce, your legal rights remain secure.




The attorneys at The Tachi law Firm will help you in preparing your case for spousal support or alimony. As a spouse in divorce proceedings, you may be entitled to spousal support or may be required to pay spousal support.
