Paralegals also known as Legal Assistants can work in a wide range of areas like corporate law, litigation, intellectual property, real estate, finance, bankruptcy, family, etc. Their basic duty is to assist the attorneys with their busy workload by performing various general duties. A Family Law Paralegal assists its employer committed to delivering family law services to clients. The matters that are covered under this law can be relating to divorce, child custody, child support, alimony, marital property settlement, and adoption. Paralegals can assist the attorneys with drafting property division and prenuptial agreements, as well as petitions, discovery requests, motions, and briefs in litigation, involving marital dissolution and child custody matters.
