  What is Family Law?  

Family Law is the body of law that in California governs marriage, marital dissolution (also known as divorce), dissolution of domestic partnerships, paternity, child custody, child support, spousal support (sometimes known as alimony), domestic violence, premarital agreements (prenuptial agreements), post-marital agreements (“antenuptial”, agreements made during the marriage), cohabitation agreements, and related topics. Family Law does not include probate (e.g., wills, trusts, and estates) or juvenile law.

Family Law cases are usually heard by a special court (Family Court) that hears only Family Law matters.
