About Palm Beach Family Law

Divorce is never easy but sometimes it’s the only solution. Whether you chose to end your marriage or you’re struggling with your spouse’s decision, the process is often complicated. Divorce is an emotional restructuring of your family’s life but it’s also a financial and legal process. If you’ve already made the critical divorce decision, it’s important to work with an attorney who understands that everything you do can affect your future.

Whether you choose to contest your divorce or work out a mutual agreement, you must still comply with state and local statutes and legal and financial responsibilities. When you have children, you must resolve custody issues. If you have a home, a car, and other financial assets, you must establish a method for equitable distribution. If only one spouse works outside of the home, spousal support is also a consideration.

An Palm Beach attorney who specializes in Family Law can help you take the proper steps to resolve your divorce-related issues. A Palm Beach family lawyer provides services that protect your legal, financial, and familial rights while resolving your legal complications.

Experienced Legal Advocacy

Palm Beach Family lawyers specialize in divorce cases and other issues involving children and families. Their focus on family law gives them a comprehensive understanding of Family Law statutes, divorce procedures, and regional courtroom traditions. A family lawyer in Palm Beach has the experience to work through anticipated and unexpected issues.

  • Child custody arrangements
  • Child visitation
  • Child support agreements
  • Spousal support
  • Hidden financial assets
  • Distribution of assets

Fact-Based Evaluations

Palm Beach Family attorneys represent your legal interests and help you achieve the best possible outcome for your family. To accomplish this, they look at the evidence and issues and make objective assessments. They get to know you, your family and every detail about you and your spouse’s circumstances. Only then can they provide honest feedback about your most favorable legal and financial alternatives.

Comprehensive Case Preparation

A divorce is a legal process. Just like other legal issues, preparation makes a big difference in the ultimate outcome. As a Palm Beach family lawyer reviews your case, they consider what they need to succeed on your behalf:

  • Court Requirements: Filings, pleadings, agreements, statements, depositions
  • Expert consultants: Specialists in family, financial, and social issues
  • Witnesses: Personal and professional support for your financial, family, and legal positions
  • Hearings: Compliance with a court-ordered discovery and negotiation schedules
  • Communication: Interaction with court officials, judges, and opposing counsel

Divorce Resolution in Palm Beach

Palm Beach Family Law attorneys understand that to resolve your pending divorce case, you and your spouse must address the key issues. This is usually difficult for divorcing couples to accomplish without a family law attorney’s communication and negotiation skills.

  • Negotiated settlements: Attorneys resolve cases by negotiating your position with the spouse’s attorney.
  • Alternative Dispute Resolution: Divorcing parties and their attorneys participate in a facilitated negotiation process such as mediation. Parties present their evidence in a neutral setting, discuss their positions, and sometimes resolve difficult issues.
  • Court Hearings: Attorneys and the divorcing spouses eventually appear before an arbitrator, magistrate, judge or another court official. During a hearing, court officials encourage settlement negotiations. During a trial, parties present their evidence and a judge issues a decision on the divorce and all unresolved issues.

When one considers divorce. The overwhelming thought of hiring an Attorney to help with the burden and all the legal matters and who to hire. There are many lawyers out there to chose from but you have to protect yourself and find an Attorney that you feel comfortable with.Not to mention the splitting up of families and assets that the couple have acquired together over the years and the huge financial burden that can come with this. It can be an over whelming and stressful to. To help with my divorce I hired Jennifer Waterway to help me through the process. After our first meeting, I felt that not only did she make me feel I was in good hands but though the whole process. Jennifer really went that extra mile.

Her experience and knowledge of family law and how the courts and local system and Judges operate was outstanding.Not only did she save me a lot of money but she was always pleasant and accommodating with me and Scheduling meetings phone calls emails etc, because I was out of the country most of the time and does make that a huge impact on communication. she is an amazing person and awesome Attorney in so many ways!

I feel so lucky to have found Jennifer Waterway. She is honest, respectful, extremely trustworthy, and just a pleasure to work with.She will go above and beyond what is expected to ensure a positive outcome. She is always available for needed guidance in my very difficult custody case...weekends, holidays, after hours phone calls, which is unheard of with most attorneys. Her work is exceptional and always completed and filed in a timely fashion, she is very organized. I feel she has a real dedication to the well-being of the children. The astounding calming effect she has during court proceedings is much appreciated during this very difficult time. Jennifer's commitment to her work and her clients is obvious, and I would absolutely recommend her to anyone! Jennifer and her team in the office is a pleasure to deal with as well.
