If a minor needs a legal guardian because his parents are not available, this is a matter that will be handled by a family lawyer. For example, if a child loses parents and has to live with another family, a family lawyer will draft all necessary documents and represent the minor in court.
Some family lawyers routinely supervise the reading of wills and make sure that assets are divided as per the requirements of the will.
Because the experience of a family lawyer can be vast, it is important to ask them whether they cover the kind of legal representation that you need.
