Accomplished firm provides strong legal support for family issues
Our Palm Beach County lawyers know that effective family law representation requires a combination of diligent legal work and compassion for our clients. We assist with a full range of household issues, such as:
- Domestic violence— If you have been threatened or abused by a spouse or someone else you have a relationship with, legal relief is available. Our advocates obtain immediate restraining orders to protect you and your loved ones from further harm.
- Paternity— When parents of a newborn are not married, legal steps must be taken to establish paternity. We handle voluntary petitions on behalf of fathers as well as conflicts that arise when fatherhood is disputed. By using evidence such as DNA tests, our firm can secure an appropriate child support order.
- Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements — Creating a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement can insure you against a financial crisis in the event that your marriage ends. By creating an authoritative document, we make sure that both parties understand how property division and other issues will be handled if a divorce occurs.
- Cohabitation — Many couples choose to live together and share property without getting married. If you have this kind of arrangement, our attorneys can advise you on ways to safeguard your rights and assets.
No matter what family challenge you face, we have the skill and track record to help you reach a favorable resolution.
Compassionate advocates litigate all types of divorce cases
Our Boca Raton divorce lawyers strive to reduce the stress of families during the end of a marriage. We work closely with our clients on child custody and support matters to secure a resolution that meets the needs of their son and daughters. Our seasoned lawyers also provide comprehensive support for divorce-related issues such as property division and alimony. In many cases, we are able to help our clients move ahead by employing mediation to settle conflicts. When that is not possible, our strong litigators present a compelling argument in court.
Knowledgeable lawyers help clients seeking to adopt a child
Choosing to adopt is a life-changing decision for you and the child you want to bring into your family. However, the process can be long and complicated whether you are pursuing domestic or international adoption. Our experienced attorneys prepare the necessary documentation and advise you on eligibility and requirements such as the preparation course and home study.
Skillful advisers work to resolve family disputes through mediation
Mediation offers an effective alternative to Floridians for resolving marital and parenting conflicts while avoiding the time and expense associated with litigation. Guided by trained facilitators, the parties are afforded the opportunity to agree on divorce terms or childcare arrangements. We encourage our clients who might benefit from this dispute resolution method to consider it as an option. Prior to the mediation session, we develop clear, concise strategies for negotiating a favorable outcome.
