Law is a very broad field with different areas having different experts. Family lawyers are quite distinct from criminal lawyers. Even so, in some instances they might overlap. You might find yourself in a situation where you cannot decide which lawyer you might need to hire, for example, in the case of divorce especially if domestic violence is involved.
This article examines key differences between family lawyers and criminal lawyers in Sydney. Platinum Lawyers Sydney is a firm that has expert lawyers from both fields – among other legal areas. You can contact us for any queries or confusion and our team will gladly assist you in giving advice about your particular case.
Family Lawyers in Sydney
Family lawyers deal with problems like divorce, separation, child custody agreements, and other such problems linked to breaking down of familial relationships – most commonly marriage. Family lawyers help you out with things you might not have considered, such as if you might be unsure as to what you are entitled to. Even if you hire a family lawyer, it does not necessarily mean that you must go to court. The family lawyer mediates between parties involved and usually reaches a mutually agreed upon agreement saving you major costs and headaches.
Criminal Lawyers in Sydney
In contrast, criminal legal services are required in case of an individual being charged with a criminal offence. A criminal offence is when an individual’s behaviour is considered unacceptable and harmful to the society as well.
There are two kinds of offences: Indictable offences, also known as felonies, and summary offences, also known as misdemeanours. Examples of cases where criminal lawyers need to be hired include assault, drug dealing, breaking and entering, fraud etc. Cases of domestic violence are usually handled by criminal lawyers, via Apprehended Violence Order (AVO). They are also called protective or restraining order.
