Everyday Law
Several major areas of law affect people in the United States to such an extent that they can be categorized as “everyday law”. The next few sections cover some of these specialized areas:

  • Marriage and Child Support
  • Estate and Trust
  • Debtor Creditor Law
  • Tax Law
  • Consumer Law
  • Landlord Tenant Law

    Most everyday law varies from state to state, while some involves the federal government.

    Libraries and government agencies often distribute free or inexpensive materials explaining these areas of the law. It pays to study them. A good knowledge will allow you often to avoid legal misunderstandings and difficulties, or be better informed if you need to consult an attorney. A side benefit will be a better understanding of American customs and values.
