Family law regulates the rights and obligations arising from marriage, the dissolution of marriage (divorce), the distribution of assets acquired during or for the purpose of marriage, the exercise of parental responsibility for children including custody and the communication of the parents with the children as well as the use of family shelter where required, and the contribution of the parents to the maintenance of the children. Where children are involved, our primary goal is the defense of their rights, well-being and well-meaning interest, by preventing situations that cause adverse effects on the psychology and consequently on the lives of the children.
Our main concern is the resolution of any dispute, in a way that ensures a quick, as painless as possible but also final solution to the problem with the aim of safeguarding the interests of the client and the family as a whole.
