A Knowledgeable Family Law Attorney To Aid You
When coping with family law challenges, most people want to reach a resolution amicably and efficiently. I actively protect your interests while trying to do so. In other cases, one or both parties are determined to contest every issue. When this happens, you definitely need a lawyer who will work tenaciously on your behalf.
Please contact my firm, Alpert Law, P.A., for a consultation to discuss your divorce case or other family law needs. In any divorce or family law matter, I believe my role as your lawyer includes actively helping you:
- Understand your legal rights and how to protect them
- Deal with complex issues proactively before they arise and assertively when negotiations or litigations begin
- Remain focused on your family and financial goals, even when pursuing them involves difficult decisions and endurance under stress
- Avoid pitfalls and frustration many people encounter when dealing with unfamiliar legal and court processes
I am a longtime resident committed to helping the people on Florida’s West Coast. My background and experience have prepared me to help you through family law challenges of all kinds.
A Full Spectrum Of Services
My knowledge and capabilities extend across the spectrum of domestic relations issues. I will patiently and diligently assist you in matters such as:
- Child support and spousal maintenance
If you have children and are divorcing, understanding how Florida courts determine and enforce child support obligations will help you form clearer financial expectations. Whether or not children are involved, you should consult a family law attorney if spousal maintenance may be a factor in your case.
- Collaborative divorce
Recognition of the pain and stress caused by the divorce process has led to various movements focused on better ways to reach settlements out of court. Collaborative divorce is one of these movements. Collaborative divorce is not for everyone, but it can be the right choice for couples who are able to set aside some of their hurt and anger in the interest of reaching an agreement.
- Divorce: contested and uncontested
Whether you are considering divorce or your spouse has filed for divorce from you, we are prepared to help you evaluate your legal options and next steps. In addition, it is common for people to reach a point in their divorce case when they must hire a different attorney to be comfortable and make progress.
- Modification and enforcement
Before your divorce is finalized, it is best to contest important issues and work toward a favorable settlement. However, you do have legal recourse and can seek a modification if circumstances change afterward.
- Paternity issues
As a full-service family law attorney, I am available to assist individuals with a range of issues involving children of unmarried parents. The laws applicable to paternity cases are not always well understood, and making assumptions or decisions without consulting a knowledgeable attorney is risky.
- Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements
It is not a sign of a weak relationship to think about a prenuptial agreement or a postnuptial agreement. It can actually show your commitment to protect one another’s assets in case the unthinkable happens. You can put any concerns about your relationship to rest with a well-written legal document.
- Property valuation and division
Financial change is a certainty in almost every divorce. Your ability to attain financial justice often depends on the diligence and resourcefulness of your lawyer.
- Wills and estate planning
Divorce almost always creates significant financial change and the need for many adjustments. In my practice, I emphasize the importance of thinking about the future. This includes striving to help my clients make good decisions about life after divorce. I draft wills, trusts and offer other essential estate planning services for my family law clients, and I encourage you to contact me if you have needs in this area.
At Alpert Law, P.A., I can help you regardless of whether you have relatively straightforward needs or you require extensive research, analysis and strategy to obtain a favorable financial settlement.
