When you think of the concept of family, it is impossible not to naturally think of a group of people who are linked by affective and/or blood ties: fathers, mothers, children, grandparents, uncles , cousins... and in today's Society the ties go beyond blood. However, and beyond a sociological definition, the family is also considered in the legal framework , where it plays a primary role: it is a social institution defined and regulated in our regulatory framework to protect and guarantee the rights and duties that arise from the bond between its members. 

What is family law and how is it legally applied?

We can affirm that Family Law is the set of legal norms that regulate matters related to the members of a specific family, treating it as a natural and social institution. Family Law is part of the issues that fall within Civil Law, which is what regulates the main aspects of this specialty, complemented by a series of specific national and regional laws that have been enacted to adapt the regulation of this institution to the social reality in any part of the national territory.

Family Law regulates, mainly:

  • Marriage: the law establishes both the valid forms of celebration and the personal and economic effects that this legal bond implies. It also deals with crisis situations that result in its annulment, in the separation of the couple or the dissolution of the bond, or in divorce.

  • The figures similar to marriage, such as de facto couples or simply unions from which, although in an unregulated way, rights and obligations arise.

  • International marriages and unions: we are talking about couples made up of members of different nationalities and cultures, which make up a sector within Family Law with specific regulations whose casuistry—every day more frequent due to the exponential increase in immigration—must dominate Law professionals.

  • Filiation: it is the bond between parents and children, whether marital, extramarital or adoptive, and also includes parental authority (relationship with non-emancipated children). 

  • Guardianship: set of rules relating to the custody and protection of minors or disabled persons who are not subject to parental authority.

  • The family patrimony: made up of the set of assets, rights and obligations that it is necessary to manage and/or, where appropriate, be able to liquidate and adjudicate in the event of death or dissolution of the marriage bond or separation of the common-law partner.
