Family law is an area of the law that deals with family- domestic relations and related issues, including:

Union, civil unions, and domestic partnerships;
child abuse and child abduction
The conclusion of relationships and ancillary issues, including alimony, divorce, annulment, property settlements, child custody and visitation, child support and alimony awards.
juvenile adjudication
This list isn’t exhaustive and changes depending on jurisdiction. In many jurisdictions in America, the crowded dockets are seen by the family courts. Litigants representative of all social and economic classes are parties within the system.

Division of property, also called equitable distribution, is a judicial division of property rights and obligations between spouses during divorce. It may be done by arrangement, through a property settlement, or by judicial decree.

Distribution is the section, because of the dissolution of a marriage or a departure, of property that was owned by the deceased, or obtained during the span of the union.

The court may consider such factors as “large contribution to the accumulation of the property, the marketplace and emotional value of the assets, tax and other economic consequences of the distribution, the parties’ needs, and any variable related to a fair result.” Equity is the prevailing guideline the court will use. Alimony payments, child support obligations and other property will be considered. Even non -tangible contributions such as the domestic contributions to the home of a partner will be considered, not or whether that partner has anything titled in their name. A partner who has made non-tangible contributions may claim an equitable interest in the marital property at divorce.

Marital misconduct is not a variable in the decision making procedure.

Another type of property distribution at divorce is called “community property distribution”.

Equitable distribution is not exactly like equivalent distribution. For example, in a family with a stay at home mom, the husband’s share may be less than 50 percent as compensation for having to return to the work force at a lower wage scale to the wife.
