Protecting your rights. Protecting your future.

When your family has legal concerns, you want to know that you have a place you can turn and a lawyer you can trust. At the St. Augustine law offices of Mowrey Shoemaker Beardsley, we can help you with a wide range of issues, from divorce and marriage dissolution to prenuptial agreements and adoption.

We are adept at negotiation and finding win-won resolutions to tough questions.

But when a rational, cooperative approach is not possible, we will be ready to fight to achieve the goals you have for your family. As a full-service law firm, our first priority is coming up with a plan that works for our clients. We are ready to help you find solutions to a wide range of family law matters, including:

• Divorce: From the division of marital property to coming up with a child custody and support plan, there are a lot of things to consider in your divorce settlement. We will look out for your long-term interests and make sure your parental rights and property rights are protected.

• Alimony: Our firm can help you come up with a spousal support plan while your divorce proceedings take place and alimony for after your divorce is finalized.

• Child Custody, Support & Visitation (Time-Sharing): Every parent wants to do what is best for their children. We will help you come up with a plan that protects your rights and looks out for the people you love the most: your kids.

• Paternity Actions: If you are involved in a paternity dispute, you want answers. We will help you find out the truth, and make sure your rights are protected.

• Prenuptial Agreements: A prenuptial agreement will protect your property rights today and in the future. If you have children from a previous marriage or specific financial concerns, we can help you come up with a plan.

• Post Divorce Modifications: As your life changes, your child support, custody, and alimony plans should change with it. We can help you get the fair and just modifications you deserve

• Adoption: Are you interested in expanding your family via adoption? We can help you with a private, stepparent, or grandparent adoption.

• Guardianships: If your loved one is no longer able to properly care for themselves because of sickness or old age, we can help you protect them with a guardianship or conservatorship.

• Probate: If you are in need of assistance dealing with the process of distributing the assets of an estate, we will help you in all ways necessary. This process can be daunting, and we are here to help.
