Family law lawyers handle a variety of issues including divorce, custody, child support, prenuptial agreements, guardianship, adoptions, and estate planning. In addition to traditional legal skills, family law often requires attorneys to be very comfortable with negotiation and counseling. The majority of private sector family law lawyers practice in small law firms, though some large law firms will have practices dealing with matrimonial law or wealth management for high net worth individuals. In the public sector, family law often involves some sort of state involvement – for example, child welfare or juvenile delinquency. Family law attorneys in the public sector often work in legal services or public defender offices.
