There are a lot of different areas of the law, and some areas have different courts, structures and legal concepts that litigants must follow. Let's take family law, for instance. The family law court has its own judges who specialize in making family law decisions according to Pennsylvania family law.
Family law cases tend to involve the complicated relationships among spouses, lovers, children, siblings and people who live in the same residence together. Ultimately, it's the family court's job to sort these relationships out, put limits on them, prevent family members from hurting one another and help couples divorce.
