Family Law And Divorce


That word invokes so much emotion. While we all may feel something different when thinking about family, we all still feel something.

When you are going through a divorce or any family issue, it can be difficult to think clearly and make solid decisions. Emotions are running high, and sometimes get the best of us.

An experienced family law attorney can offer insight into the legal issues and support during these stressful times.

At the Fort Walton Beach law offices of Aaron B. Wentz, P.A., we are committed to providing a high level of personal service for our clients.

Our approach is this:

  • Listen
  • Help you understand your legal options
  • Be an advocate for your rights
