"Family" is often defined as parents and children living together under one roof, individuals with a common ancestry, or those grouped together by common characteristics or values. It can also be described as a place where you feel safe, loved for, or a place where you feel a sense of belonging. As being family lawyers, we at The Law Firm of Charles D.
