La Crosse Attorneys Provide Insight on 3 Types of Family Law Cases

1. Dissolution of Marriage

Dissolution of marriage may be the most common type of family law case. This can entail a traditional divorce as well as a legal separation. In either case, both parties come to terms with issues like child custody, visitation rights, spousal support, and the division of marital property. Some divorces can be incredibly complex, while others are relatively simple when there are few assets or property and spouses are able to come to terms on their own.

2. Juvenile Issues

Hearings related to juveniles participating in illegal activities would occur here, as well as hearing involving allegations of abuse or neglect. Emancipation of minors from their parents is also an issue commonly seen in family court, which can entail a juvenile becoming financially responsible for his or herself.

3. Establishing Guardianship

In the event that a child’s parents are deemed unfit, guardianship will need to be established. This can also occur if both parents are deceased, in which case the court would be tasked with finding suitable guardians for the child in questions. Guardians are often family members, but can also be foster families or other qualified individuals.
