Emerald Coast Family Law Attorneys

Dedicated to Giving You a Voice In & Out of Court in Okaloosa County, FL

Family law cases can be stressful, especially when you are facing contentious matters involving the possibility of huge changes to your life and your future. These issues can cost you time, money, and headaches, especially when you cannot come to decisions or if you do not have a neutral third-party to advocate for your best interests.

Our role is to make sure the court has accurate information about incomes, family needs, and property information. We work to ensure the amount and duration of spousal or child support is fair under statutory guidelines, when applicable, and our Emerald Coast family law attorneys can step in when circumstances change to argue for or against changes in any of your agreements.

Call Chesser & Barr, P.A. at 850.610.7471 to schedule your initial consultation today.
