I have an assignment due and I’ve stumbled into writers block. Have been reading my text book for hours but things still aren’t registering.
With the assignment due in about a months time, i’m not much closer to understanding the family law system.
Here is my first paragraph.
Family law is a legal practice that focuses on child custody, relationships and divorce proceedings. The Lawyers or Attorneys that practice this can represent their clients in court proceedings and can also assist in drafting documents such as petitions and or property agreements.
Some states, in particular QLD, have the rights to determine the formal requirements for marriage as well as the requite rules and regulations for divorce and or other family law matters.
