Family law

Family law deals with disputes that may arise in relationships between spouses, parents and children as well as disputes over alimony commitments of other family members.

Family disputes are the most complex type of legal case due to the specific provisions of relevant Russian law and the psychological factors involved in such disputes. It is therefore advisable to seek legal advice from a lawyer specialising in family law, who will help you to minimise stress. achieve compromise through negotiation in the most difficult situation, and defend your interests in a court of law if necessary.
