Who are the Family Lawyers?What is Family Law?
A Family Lawyer is a professional with expert knowledge in everything related to Family Law. The Family Law is the legal norm that regulates rights and duties between those who conform the family unit; the budgets and formalities exigible to the different family realities with civil effectiveness; celebrations and matrimonial separations, nullities and dissolutions of the matrimonial bond or the de facto relationship or unions; the different matrimonial economic regimes to administer the goods.
It is also the branch of law that is responsible for regulating the relations of parental authority in the personal and patrimonial sphere, guardianship, curatorship, emancipation and de facto guardianship in the case of minors and disabled persons. Another large area in which family lawyers are in charge is related to inheritance in the family sphere.
Family law is the law that deals with all issues related to family relationships in matters such as divorce, inheritance, parental authority, custody, incapacitation and so on.
It presents peculiar characteristics: it regulates ethical conducts that the Law converts into legal ones, which causes an attenuated sanctioning of certain precepts and an unenforceability of some obligations. Its normative formulation limits the principle of autonomy of will, with a high percentage of mandatory rules, which leads to the affirmation of a certain character of public law. It is transpersonal, its rules do not protect a particular interest but a family interest by regulating interpersonal rights and obligations.
Family law is essentially contained in our Civil Code. The foral Compilations contain, for their respective territories, their own rules and institutions, the most characteristic of which are those relating to the matrimonial property regime. We can also speak of a "constitutionalized" family law. In our Constitution the family is contemplated in different places. Thus, Article 32: Men and women have the right to enter into marriage with full legal equality. The law shall regulate the forms of marriage, the age and capacity to contract it, the rights and duties of the spouses, the causes of separation and dissolution and their effects; art. 39: the public authorities ensure the social, economic and legal protection of the family... likewise, the integral protection of children, who are equal before the law.... The law will make possible the investigation of paternity.
Art. 53 establishes the family as the principle that inspires legislation, judicial practice and the actions of the public authorities. Art. 18.1 guarantees the right to family privacy, even in the face of the freedom of expression of Art. 20.4; Art. 27.3 recognizes the right of parents to ensure that their children receive the religious and moral training that is in accordance with their own convictions; Art. 35 calls for sufficient remuneration to meet family needs; and Art. 50 takes into account family obligations in promoting the welfare of the elderly.
