Attorney Truong has extensive experience in family law matters and has handled numerous family law matters in the Massachusetts courts. Family law means any legal issue relating to any family matter and not just domestic relations between spouses.

Summary ¹

Family law matters are handled in the state courts not the federal courts. In Massachusetts, most family law matters are handled in the Family and Probate Court.

Family law includes:

1. The nature of marriage, civil unions, and domestic partnerships;

2. Any of the issues which may arise during a marriage or other relationship, such as spousal abuse, child abuse, paternity and child support, adoption, surrogacy, and child abduction;

3. Termination of a marriage or other relationship including including divorce, annulment, property settlements, alimony, and parental responsibility issues such as child custody, visitation and child support;

Family law also includes every aspect of the law about the modern family and this list by no means includes all family law issues which may arise in the court system. Because family law involves all social and economic classes family courts are many times the busiest courts of all within the various state court systems.
