Family Law

Similar to criminal law, family law is a body of law that primarily falls under state jurisdiction. While there are some exceptions to this, for the most part, state courts are the ones who deal with the majority of these matters. Because of this, guidelines can sometimes vary from state to state, and in Texas, the statutory rules that govern the family can be found under the Texas Family Code.

The Texas Family Code follows statutory law. It contains all the formal rules that govern family law in Texas which are laid down by legislative bodies in state and federal governments. There are numerous categories and situations that fall under family law. If you are unsure what your situation would fall under, it is advised to consult with an attorney who can help guide you through the process.
