If you ask several residents of Broward County or other Florida locales for their personal definition of the phrase "family law," you are quite likely to get several different answers.
What, indeed, is family law?
Well, the term obviously and at the outset applies to families and the issues that most centrally affect them.
For some individuals, that might fundamentally mean divorce, and most family law lawyers do in fact include divorce representation as an integral part of their practice focus.
At the Law Office of Rebekah Brown-Wiseman in Fort Lauderdale, we also provide clients with diligent, empathetic and tailored representation that fully promotes their legal interests in divorce-related matters. Those matters can range widely from property division considerations and issues relating to custody and support to grandparents' rights and business valuation in high-asset dissolutions.
Our firm also notes, though, that a truly effective family law practice encompasses much more than a mere divorce focus. Rebekah Brown-Wiseman brings a singularly integrated professional background to bear on behalf of clients with highly varied concerns and motivations. A family law practice that seeks to take care of all individuals who need legal assistance and remedies must reach out broadly and command experience in myriad areas, including the following:
- Evolving trends and terminology in family law
- Adoption-related matters
- Marital contracts, such as prenuptial and postnuptial agreements
- Fathers' rights issues, including paternity
In sum, family law encompasses a wide universe of considerations, with select attorneys offering effective services across the full panoply of concerns that can arise in this special area of law.
Rebekah Brown-Wiseman seeks to employ maximum skill on behalf of her clients, combining her legal acumen with a specialized background in social work and practice-relevant experience as a child therapist.
