At current era, international humanitarian law has much importance and different dimensions while before the establishment of the United Nations Organization; merely bill conventions considered this issue. But after the formation of the United Nations Organization, Geneva rights were formed in 1949. Humanitarian law has different dimensions like family discussions that have been reflected in numerous documents of humanitarian law. For example, in quadruple Geneva conventions and two additional protocols, the cases from this view for exerting some humane supports of families can be considered. Even in some cases, according to the competence of the international penal court, some crimes against women and children have been criminalized, and massive criminal guarantees have been ordained for dealing with them. Therefore, in this article about the necessity and importance of the support of a family dynasty as the central core of human societies, numerous documents of humanitarian law have been studied and analyzed for supporting this important social element. Also, this result was obtained that in armed conflicts such as domestic or international, protection of a relation between the family members and special support of women, physically challenged persons and children in the first degree are considered as supportive priorities in Geneva conventions and supportive documents of humanitarian law.
