Gainesville Family Law Attorneys

When two individuals end a marriage or a nonmarital relationship, the emotions that result can be severe, ranging from anger to confusion to despair. At The Law Office of Robert W. Bauer, P.A., in Gainesville, we see the fallout of this in the various attitudes that individuals bring to divorce and other family law issues. Some are intent on inflicting financial or emotional pain on the other party, while others adopt a "let's get it over with" or "whatever is best for the children" approach. All of these approaches have their problems.

Our experienced family law attorneys help our clients adopt a more goal-oriented approach to addressing the significant decisions that must be made. We help you see that the goal needs to be what is best for you, and any children you may have, for the long term. Remember, it is not best for your children for you to get the short end of the stick and loss of everything you have earned. You need to be able to take care of your children now and not be a burden in the future.

Sometimes smart negotiation and carefully considered compromises can produce effective agreements. Other times, a matter can only be resolved in court. It's important to be represented by a lawyer who knows which approach makes the most sense for the moment, and one who can then carry that strategy through. We litigate when it makes sense, just as we resolve disputes through negotiation when a fair offer is on the table.
