Raising a child is expensive with costs for schooling and extracurricular activities, clothes, food, shelter, transportation, daycare, healthcare, college savings and other needs. Both parents have the legal responsibility to support their child and neither parent should struggle with more than their fair share of these costs. At David F. Allen Attorney at Law LLC I negotiate, enforce and/or modify arrangements for the financial well-being of children. When clients in Central Florida find themselves in a child support battle, I leave no stone unturned as I work to demonstrate each parent’s financial ability and the needs and special needs of their children. My priority is to achieve a settlement or decision that keeps all children safe, healthy and secure.
At David F. Allen Attorney at Law LLC I take a hands-on personal approach in addressing the needs of every client. Dedicated to helping parents understand and assert their rights, I handle even the most complicated child support conflicts. Drawing on my 40 years of experience and knowledge of case law, I provide the following services:
I will thoroughly explain the Florida Child Support Guidelines and how they apply to you. My aim is to keep clients informed and empowered at every step so they know what their children are entitled to and what they can expect out of the legal process, including back child support (arrears)!
Children do best when their parents can be respectful of each other. Through the structured process of mediation, parents often put aside their differences and focus upon topics in which they agree — their child’s well-being. Mediation presents a forum for creating fair child support plans that allow both parents to share in the financial obligations of raising their children. I can guide the process toward equitable solutions that save time and money. In high-conflict situations the parents can remain in separate rooms!
Sometimes trial is necessary to obtain the financial support your child deserves. I meticulously prepare for litigation and am unrelenting in fighting for your child’s right to a financially stable upbringing. If the other parent tries to evade crucial financial obligations, David Allen can compel the enforcement of your Child Support Order. However, Judges understand that a lost job or serious injury can render a parent unable to pay child support. If your circumstances change I will Petition the Court for a modification of the support Order.
When it comes to your child’s financial well-being, securing the services of a committed and knowledgeable attorney is crucial to achieving a positive outcome in a child support case. Call David F. Allen Attorney at Law L.L.C at 407-247-8831 today to schedule a free consultation.
