Whether you’re thinking about filing for divorce, creating a parenting plan, or dealing with another type of family law dispute, it’s important to ask for help.

How The Law Offices of Travis R. Walker, P.A. Can Help With Your Family Law Case

You shouldn’t navigate the challenges of your family law case on your own. When family is involved, tempers and tensions can run high, making it easy to get lost in the emotions and lose sight of what you want to accomplish. This is certainly true when young children—and their well-being—are involved.

Hiring a family law attorney in Stuart, FL, is one of the best things you can do when faced with legal issues that can change your family’s life forever.

At The Law Offices of Travis R. Walker, P.A., we take time to listen to each client’s unique story and identify their specific goals. We customize a strategy that’s designed to achieve those goals as painlessly as possible.

Often, that involves prioritizing alternative dispute resolution methods like mediation or collaborative divorce, which can limit costs, accelerate timetables, and keep decisions about your future in your hands rather than in a judge’s.

We’ll be the buffer you need when emotions begin to get the best of the situation. We’ll offer clarity, guidance, and advice during the most stressful times in your life. We’ll be there to lead you through the legal process of getting a divorce, fighting for child support, dividing assets fairly, and ultimately doing what is best for you and your family.

If your dispute goes to court, you’ll benefit from the extensive experience of our top-rated Florida trial attorneys. We’ll put together a strong case that highlights the reasons why the judge should decide in your favor and bring in experts, specialists, and witnesses for added support.

We Handle All Family Law Disputes in Florida

At The Law Offices of Travis R. Walker, P.A., we have decades of experience representing clients in all types of family law disputes, including:

Divorce

Whether you’re filing for divorce or have recently been served with divorce papers, it’s important to move through the process carefully. Spouses must agree to the terms of their divorce—how property and debts will be allocated, who gets custody of the kids (and when), and whether financial support will be paid—before a judge will approve the dissolution.

The longer it takes to find common ground on these issues, the longer it’ll take to get divorced—and the more expensive it will be. If you can’t agree, unresolved issues will be decided by a court. Our Stuart divorce lawyers can help you move through the process and keep important decisions in your hands.

We represent clients in all types of divorce cases, including LGBT divorce, military divorce, contested divorce, uncontested divorce, high net worth divorce, and more.

Child Custody

Florida wants to prioritize custody arrangements that (a) are in a child’s best interest and (b) keep both parents in the child’s life. When parents split up, courts require a parenting plan to outline how custody will be arranged.

Our Florida child cstody lawyers have extensive experience drafting and negotiating parenting plans that serve the children’s best interests and keep them in safe, meaningful contact with their parents. We’ll advocate for you and make sure that your parental responsibility is preserved.

Child Support

Often, the non-custodial parent—the one who spends less time with the children—is required to pay child support. This helps to ensure that both parents are actively supporting their kids. Florida has specific guidelines for calculating child support to ensure that payments are fair for the children and the paying parent. Whether you’re fighting for more child support or requesting a modification of an existing order, our Stuart child support attorneys can help ensure that the amount being paid is fair.

Spousal Support/Alimony

Spouses rarely have the same income, which isn’t really a cause for concern during a marriage. However, it can pose a challenge for the lesser-earning spouse in a divorce. In some situations, Florida will require a higher-earning spouse to pay spousal support, or alimony, to the lesser-earning spouse to help them land on their feet after a split. Our Florida spousal support attorneys can help you petition for alimony or fight to limit how much alimony, if any, has to be paid.

Property Division

Florida is an equitable division state, which means that spouses are entitled to a fair share of the marital assets (and debts) after a divorce. What’s fair isn’t always equal, and many spouses disagree on who should get what and how property should be dealt with.

Our Stuart property division attorneys work closely with respected financial specialists, appraisers, forensic accountants, and other experts to ensure that all property (and debts) are identified and valued properly. Once assets are identified, we can help you prioritize the property you want to secure and determine where you’re most willing to compromise.

Paternity

Parents share equal rights (and obligations) to their children under Florida state law. In some cases, it might be necessary to establish (or contest) paternity, especially when matters of child support or custody are at issue. Our Stuart family law attorneys can help you either petition to confirm paternity or challenge it, depending on your specific situation.

Adoption

Adoption is a wonderful way to grow a family, but in Florida, the adoption process is anything but easy. Whether you want to adopt a newborn baby or teen or foster a child in need, our Florida adoption attorneys can help you satisfy the requirements and work toward your goal of expanding your family.

Domestic Violence

Domestic violence is a serious problem in many relationships across the Sunshine State. If you or your child has been abused by a family member, it’s important to leave the situation and ask for help. Our Stuart domestic violence lawyers can help get your family to safety, file a petition for an injunction or restraining order to keep your abusive spouse away from you, and help you kickstart the process of filing for divorce.

Prenuptial Agreements

Prenuptial agreements are private contracts that dictate how assets should be handled in the event that a couple eventually gets divorced. Executed before marriage, they can help spouses sidestep Florida’s laws on property division and keep decisions about their split more controlled. In Florida, prenuptial agreements are valid as long as both partners enter into the contract willingly and the terms are fair. Our Florida prenuptial agreement attorneys can help you and your spouse-to-be execute a prenup that’s fair and that can be used to accelerate the divorce process, should you split up.
