Compassionate and Dedicated Representation for Family Law Matters

Family law, estate planning, and probate matters are all deeply personal. For many people, it can be difficult to open up even when they are desperately in need of help. At Beller & Bustamante, P.L., we will treat you with the utmost dignity, always respecting your confidentiality and never putting anyone else’s interests before yours.

Rebeccah Beller and Mina Bustamante are experienced attorneys who truly care about their clients’ needs. From preparing to get married to going through a divorce. We want to help you feel comfortable and ensure that your interests are protected.

At Beller & Bustamante, P.L., we provide representation for all types of family law matters, including:

Going Through A Divorce

From an emotional standpoint, going through a divorce is never easy. We understand this, and want to make the legal process as straightforward and streamlined as possible. If both you and your spouse have worked out what you each want from the divorce, we offer flat-fee options for uncontested divorces. If you need an advocate for pursuing rights relating to your children, marital property, or spousal support (alimony), we can represent you in a contested divorce as well.

Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements

Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements can be important tools for estate planning. They can also help lay the foundation for a successful marriage. We strongly recommend that all couples take the time to explore and understand the benefits of these marital agreements.

Establishing Paternity

We represent both mothers and fathers in matters of paternity. Whether you are seeking child support or are trying to prove or disprove parental rights, Beller & Bustamante, P.L. can help. Learn more about Florida paternity actions.

Guardianships

Guardianship rights allow non-parents to take legal responsibility for the finances, health, and welfare of minor children and incapacitated adults. Guardianship cases are usually tense and often adversarial. We help our clients become appointed as guardians, adhere to their guardianship responsibilities, and contest guardianship appointments of others.

Collaborative Law

Collaborative law is a process for amicably resolving a divorce without court involvement or heated disputes.  If you and your spouse have some differences but are willing to work together in order to reduce costs and arrive at a resolution that fairly serves both of your respective interests as well as those of your children, a collaborative law divorce might be right for you.

Modification of Alimony, Child Support, Visitation, and Time Sharing

When circumstances change following a divorce, it is not unusual for former spouses to desire to modify their rights with respect to financial support or spending time with their children. In order to grant a modification, the Florida courts typically require proof of a substantial change.

Finalizing a divorce takes work, and the courts do not like to be flooded with requests seeking to disrupt finalized settlement agreements and divorce decrees.  As a result, most modifications involve matters such as:

  • Increased financial needs
  • Loss of income
  • Relocations
  • Introduction of new spouses, domestic partners, or other relationships
  • Substance abuse
  • Domestic violence

If you would like to pursue a modification, we urge you to contact us for a consultation. We can evaluate your situation and help you decide on a cost-effective course of action.
