The family and the extended family

Family relationships are the primary focus of many people's lives. Of course, these relationships are precious and generally long-lasting, but very often they can also be rather fragile. If a relationship between two partners is heading for a breakup, the parties involved need to find an acceptable modus vivendi that respects everyone's rights. GSJ's lawyers and lawyers-mediators are experts in family law and family property law and they can help you in this particular field.

Family law focuses primarily on the legal implications of the termination of a relationship between individuals, whether it be a marriage, a legal cohabitation or a de facto form of cohabitation. In this regard, parental authority and the residence and financial arrangements for the children of the spouses are critical issues that must be addressed.

Sometimes the parties can come to an arrangement by mutual agreement, while in other cases a solution must be found by resorting to proceedings before the family court.

The desire to separate calmly and serenely can also be seen in the increased importance of multi-party mediation. GSJ's two family law lawyers-mediators act as the intermediary for all the parties involved. These lawyers work out a settlement with the parties and subsequently have it reviewed and ratified by the family court.

Of course, a separation or divorce also has material consequences. Family property law determines the rules according to which the joint assets must be liquidated and distributed.

Another aspect of family property law is the law of succession, which is invoked in the event of disputes over an estate. Here too, GSJ's lawyers or lawyers-mediators can play an important role in bringing the conflict to a successful conclusion.
