What it Means to Be a Family Law Specialist

Not every family lawyer can state that they are a "specialist" or an "expert" just because they've been a family law attorney for many years. The State Bar of California requires an attorney to become certified with the California Board of Legal Specialization in order to put him or herself forward as such.

To be a Certified Family Law Specialist, the following criteria must be met:

1. At least 5 years of substantial involvement in family law immediately prior to applying, including:

2. Principal counsel in a certain number of family law hearings, trials, judgments, stipulated temporary family law orders, or briefs (including principal authorship).

3. Completion of at least 45 hours of family law educational activities within the 3 years immediately preceding the application for certification, including a minimum number of hours in the areas of:

  • Divorce
  • Enforcement
  • Mediation
  • Custody
  • Support
  • Property division
  • Divorce counseling
  • Other areas
