Who We Are

The importance of family law

Research shows that close family relationships are the key to better health and well-being. But, unfortunately, these days, families that get along are not a given.  Family dynamics are complex, and society condones (and accepts) many different family forms, from single-parent families to blended households. Delving even deeper, we see that each family and its dynamics are unique, although there are common underlying patterns.

Family law affects family dynamics. For example, it can establish who has responsibility for someone else and determine arrangements following divorce or adoption.  It also deals with issues in marriage, foster care, abuse and more.

The importance of family law lies in how it helps families.  Robertsons Family Law exists to assist families in navigating the legal issues of family life. We provide a framework for resolving family disputes and set out the rights and responsibilities family members have toward each other.
