The evolution of Family and Children's Law has been considerable in the last decades, forcing the legislator to embrace the changes and provide legal accommodation for them. As a consequence, in recent years, BR has kept pace with these changes, constantly adapting. Family Law issues are not limited to divorces and parental responsibility regulations. Also cover preventive measures, for example in the competent choice of property regime in a marriage. Within the scope of Family Law, we act in all types of family relationships, from marriage, to the establishment of marital property regimes, divorce, alimony, paternity, child custody, among others.

Also in this area, where children's rights are framed, we act in judicial and mediation matters, where one of our partners is a specialist in mediation, being an official mediator with the Family Mediation System (FMS), allowing the resolution of family conflicts without resorting to court, being also a social judge with the Family and Minors Court of Lisbon appointed by the Lisbon City Council for matters of family competence, with the aim of encouraging popular participation in justice and raising awareness of the dominant social values. (Substitute Social Judge of the Family and Minors Court of Lisbon since 2021).

We have a solid training that enables them to deal with issues related both to Children's Law and to patrimonial issues related to Family and Succession Law, where we deal with complex issues that require a lot of rigor, dedication, technical knowledge and description.

In the field of succession, the transmission of assets between generations after the death of the respective holder is a problem of all times, and therefore the questions it raises are eternal, and to that extent BR is prepared to respond in this area of Law.

We have extensive and solid experience in advising family offices and individual clients in the field of Succession and Family Law (in the areas of planning, negotiation, organization and generational transfer of assets and litigation), wealth planning, private international law and nationality issues. Dr. Patrícia Baltazar Resende, the partner who leads the work on these matters of Family and Children Law, is considered one of the most respected specialists in her two sectors of practice, having already been distinguished with several national and international awards and recommendations.
