WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

Tina Lewert instilled in me that there are lawyers in family law that understand unique situations. I had horrible experiences with several lawyers and finding Ms. Lewert was nothing shy of a Godsend. She wholeheartedly understood my situation and was the only lawyer to resolve my 10 year nightmare. I cannot thank Ms. Lewert enough for the freedom she gave me and my son. She has proven to be the absolute best! I highly recommend Tina Lewert, Law for her expertise, honesty and commitment to her clients.

A.K.

Tina is a wonderful attorney. She guided me through my ugly case and ultimately her wisdom lead me to successful settlement of my case. She wasn’t afraid to advise me of the pros AND cons of my case, and the legal system which can be brutal, and I always felt like she was being straight with me, instead of just telling me what I wanted to hear like another attorney I spoke with. Tina is quick on her feet and I could also tell that she is respected by judges and other attorneys (by the way everyone treated her when we did have to go to court to finalize the divorce once settled). If you need a strong, confident divorce lawyer who also happens to be a good person, hire Tina Lewert.

Her staff was wonderful and made what was a very stressful situation for my family as comfortable as possible. Even after my case was finished she continued to be available for questions and concerns. In the past, I had a very bad experience with another attorney from a larger firm trying to milk my case for fees. Ms. Lewert is very trustworthy and I never felt like she took advantage of me regarding her fees. I would highly recommend Ms. Lewert to anyone in need of an attorney who has a Family Law issue.

W.H.

It is rare to find a lawyer that never loses sight of the realistic certainties of my divorce.

D.C.

I chose Ms. Lewert for my divorce because she is Board Certified and only practices family law.

A.C.

Ms. Lewert never lost sight of the practical realities of my divorce. Although she listened compassionately so that she understood what she needed to, she did not let me lose sight of my goals and what was achievable within the system even when things got emotional. She protected my financial interests and my personal interests. Thanks to Ms. Lewert, I no longer have to deal with a difficult ex-. She didn’t always tell me what I wanted to hear, but because of that, my case did not drag out longer than it should have. I never felt that she put her own interests ahead of mine. Her judgment was reasonable and her advice sound. She and her staff were good at dealing with difficult and unreasonable people in a professional and ethical way. Thanks to Ms. Lewert, I never got drawn into senseless battles, recovered as quickly as possible from my divorce and was able to move on and enjoy a better life.

Hire a Trusted Boca Raton Divorce Lawyer to Handle Your Case

When hiring a Board Certified Boca Raton Divorce Lawyer, clients can be confident that their interests are protected and that they have a Family Law expert on their side. This will help to achieve the best possible outcome for your case.

So what will your attorney do precisely? A Board Certified Family Law Attorney is equipped to handle every aspect of the divorce process, including the division of assets, arranging a child custody agreement (also known in Florida as a Parenting Plan) and determining how much will be paid in alimony and/or child support.
Your attorney may also employ a team of experts or other professionals depending on the needs of your case such as:

  • Forensic accountants
  • Business valuation experts
  • Certified divorce financial planners
  • Vocational experts
  • Social Investigators
  • A guardian ad litem
  • or many others

Deciding if Your Divorce Will Include an Alimony Agreement

Alimony, also known as spousal support, can take many forms, ranging from short term to long term. “Bridge the gap” alimony serves to aid in a spouse’s transition into their new single life.

Rehabilitative alimony may be provided if one spouse was the sole breadwinner and the other party lacks the skills and experience required to survive independently. So over the course of several months or several years, one party may pay rehabilitative alimony as their former partner seeks the education or training they need to start a career or rehabilitate themselves back into the workforce.

Permanent alimony may be awarded in long term marriages if one party is incapable of earning enough to maintain the standard of living that they enjoyed during the marriage, or if a party is disabled and can never regain employment. The court may also award what is known as durational alimony, which typically involves a marriage of moderate duration and payments that span a maximum timeframe of the marriage. So if a couple was married for 15 years, then durational alimony could be paid out for a period of 15 years, although it is usually less.

Notably, alimony is usually discontinued if the recipient gets remarried.

Some cases don’t fall neatly into one of these categories, but whatever the situation, Boca Raton divorce attorney Tina L. Lewert will work on your behalf to secure the best possible arrangement.

Not every case necessitates an alimony award as part of the divorce proceedings, but if you do wish to seek alimony from your soon-to-be-former spouse, or if your spouse is seeking alimony from you, you’ll want a divorce and alimony lawyer with a great deal of experience in negotiating and trying such cases. This is precisely the experience and skill that Attorney Tina L. Lewert provides to her clients.
Getting Child Support With Help From a Family Law Attorney

Child support can be determined during the actual divorce process, but it’s not uncommon for child support to be revisited in the future as financial circumstances change.

In some instances, child support may be negotiated alongside the child custody agreement, since the amount of child support that a parent receives is largely influenced by the custody arrangement. A parent who has a child 90% of the time will receive more child support than a parent who has custody of the child 50% of the time.  In Florida, however, there is a presumption in favor of close and continuing contact for both parents with their children.

In addition to determining the amount of child support that is paid out to the other parent, it is not uncommon to arrange for one parent to pay certain expenses. For instance, a parent may also be required to pay the child’s school tuition, extra-curricular activities, or summer camp, or they may be ordered to maintain health insurance coverage for the children.

Your lawyer can also assist if you need to go before the court to request a reduction in child support due to a job loss or another significant change in your financial circumstances. Boca Raton family law attorney Tina L. Lewert also deals with cases involving a former partner who is inconsistent with their child support payments. The courts typically intervene when this occurs, so it is prudent to have an attorney who can represent you during these proceedings.

Establishing and Altering Your Child Custody Agreement

Child custody is a very emotional topic, as every parent loves their child. It’s understandably painful to realize that you may no longer be with your child on a daily basis. This pain can evolve into anger, making a difficult situation all the more challenging.

Determining child custody may begin with the mediation process. But in cases where the parents cannot arrive at an agreement, the matter will be brought before a family court judge who will evaluate the situation. Your career and your working hours, your home and its condition, your lifestyle and your overall ability to care for a child are all considered. Sometimes a guardian ad litem or social investigator is appointed to make recommendations to the court as to the best interests of the children.

There are many different issues that will be addressed as you develop a child custody agreement, including a detailed timesharing schedule, outlining pick up and drop off times, holiday and school break timesharing, and which parent’s address should be utilized for school district designation.

When hiring a family law and divorce lawyer, Boca Raton parents can move forward knowing that they have an experienced Board Certified family lawyer Boca Raton who can help them arrive at an out-of-court agreement. Or, if you choose to go before a judge, Family Lawyer at Lewert will represent you well as a skilled and professional advocate in the courtroom.
