Pasco County Divorce Attorney
Family Law For New Port Richey, West Pasco, & Hernando County Residents
Family Law is one of the most emotionally charged areas of a legal practice because the issues in play are so close to a client’s heart.
The impacts of these cases are far reaching and long lasting, and they affect the people you love the most.
If you are contemplating a family law action in New Port Richey, West Pasco, or anywhere in Pasco County or Hernando County, what you probably need most is clear, sound advice.
My name is Dale Bernstein, an experienced family law and divorce attorney serving New Port Richey, Florida and all of Pasco County. If you are considering a divorce, I can help not only protect your interests in this often difficult process, but provide steady guidance as you make your way through one of the most challenging times you’ll ever have…. the breakup of your marriage.
As an experienced divorce attorney, I can tell you honestly that moving ahead with your divorce will be one of the most emotionally draining things you’ll ever do. There will be good days, but be prepared for a lot of bad days too.
You may be dealing with so many emotions right now that you’re not even sure what questions to ask. Maybe you were just served with divorce papers. If you and your spouse have children, you’re probably going through even more worries: How will they cope with this change? Will they blame themselves? How do you protect them from the emotional roller coaster you’re on right now?
Unfortunately, everything you’re feeling is entirely normal – and it’s also exactly why you need a good divorce attorney at your side. In such an emotionally heightened time, it’s hard to make good decisions or see past your concerns. I can help resolve all the problems you’re facing. I will vigorously defend your rights and interests when the situation calls for it, but I will also provide you with practical, impartial advice based on more than twenty-five years of experience with people who are going through exactly what you’re going through.
As your divorce attorney, I will work closely with you and your family to negotiate agreements on the difficult issues, starting with separation, to child support, asset distribution such as a home, business or retirement plan, spousal support, division of any debts, even how to prepare for future college expenses for the kids or who gets the pet. I will aggressively defend your interests while exploring every possible option to arrive at an “intelligent divorce” with a settlement that protects you.
On the other hand, perhaps you and your spouse want to make an amicable split. I will still passionately defend your interests while respectfully working with the other side to negotiate a fair arrangement that fits both parties’ expectations.
Whatever the specific needs of your case are, as your attorney I will work with you to reach a fair, just settlement that takes into account your needs and the needs of your children and family.
It is an unpleasant truth that so much of family law involves divorce, but as a family law attorney, I am also able to help you and your family with an array of legal issues.
