Matters concerning your family, particularly your nuclear family members, can be fraught with emotional ties. Not to mention that the shared history that you have with the family member also impedes your ability to solve problems objectively rather than subjectively. Thus, there is a crucial need for family law when it comes to the intervention of numerous family disputes. While there are some situations where you may need to take your parent or sibling to court, most family law cases tend to focus on spouses.
Hello, all. I am a volunteer worker at an outreach centre which helps people of all ages with financial problems. I have come to realise that many of these people face hardships due to life-changing incidents such as unfair dismissal, a workplace injury or a car accident. Many of them are hard workers who aren’t aware of their legal rights. Last year, our outreach centre brought a lawyer on board to provide legal advice and assistance. I help by scheduling appointments, taking notes and following up on each case. I have learnt an awful lot about our laws and am impressed how knowing the right legal avenues can change people’s lives. I have just started a legal assistant’s course and thought this blog might be a good place to record the knowledge I gain. I hope you find it useful and insightful. Thank you for stepping into my world.
