The decision to end a marriage or lengthy relationship can be agonizing. When it comes as a surprise and was not your decision at all, the shock can be paralyzing. In either case, you need to act to protect your future finances and relationship with your children.
ESTATE PLANNING & PROBATE
Protecting your family requires advance estate planning that is tailored to meet your needs. If you are dealing with the death or incapacity of an aging parent, friend or relative, you also need skilled legal assistance to navigate a difficult time.
Sometimes, a case doesn’t end when a judge or jury announces its decision. Often, it may be necessary to challenge or defend the decision that was reached. Our attorneys can assist clients with appeals of both temporary and final orders in most areas of the law.
With more than 25 years of cumulative experience, our lawyers have the resolve and resources to produce the best possible outcome.
If your relationship has come to an end, how do you move forward? What rights do you have to spend time with your child or children? How do you ensure that you will have the resources to provide for children and pay the monthly bills now and into the future? It is critical to immediately speak with a lawyer who knows Florida family law and routinely appears in court.
