With regard to family law the main reasons why people turn to a lawyer are:

problems related to children, including identification of parentage (paternity) and disputing paternity, issues related to custody and right to make decisions (residence of a child, etc.), establishment of communication order, alimony claims and other questions related to child maintenance. These issues also include child-related disputes between parents residing in different states and international child abduction within the meaning of the Hague Convention;

- problems concerning marriage and division of property,, including dissolution of a marriage and division of joint property, as well as regulation of other property relations between spouses;

- establishment of guardianship.


As a rule, the topics concerning family and personal issues are emotionally difficult for everybody and legally complicated, that’s why their resolution without help of a person possessing legal knowledge is quite difficult and at times even impossible. At the same time such issues are extremely delicate and urgent, and therefore they require finding a quick solution. If the parties fail to find a solution by way of negotiations, it is always possible and at times even necessary to go to court and resolve the issue with its help.
