Family Law & Divorce

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 attorneys have been practicing law in Florida civil and family courts for decades, and understand the complex and ever-changing laws in Florida.

Our approach is simple:
 

  • Listen and understand your situation 

  • Help you understand your legal options

  • Serve as an advocate for your rights
     

Our attorneys are committed to protecting the rights of our clients through negotiation or litigation and to helping them develop realistic, long-term solutions. We advise and represent our clients throughout the divorce process, making sure their legal interests are protected whether in a divorce settlement or at trial.
