Divorce is an emotional and stressful event. If your marriage has come to an end, David F. Allen will look out for your best legal interests so you can concentrate on the well-being of your family. I help clients in Lake County and throughout Florida to obtain fair agreements and Orders for how their marital property will be divided and how their children will be cared for. My knowledge of Florida laws and practices enables me to provide advice on all aspects of divorce and to address questions you may have.
As a divorce attorney at David F. Allen Attorney at Law LLC, I am experienced at fighting for my clients’ rights in all aspects of divorce, including:
Child custody and visitation — Court Orders determine where your child will live, how parenting time will be split and to what degree each parent gets to make decisions about their child’s life. This is a Court Ordered Parenting Plan, a Long Distance Parenting Plan or Safety Focused Parenting Plan
Child support — A number of factors are used to calculate child support payments, from each parent’s income to each child’s particular needs. I will seek an order in your child’s best interest.
Distribution of property — The division of your home and all other assets often depends on whether property is owned by a couple or by just one spouse. I will press for “Equitable Distribution” of the marital estate and retirement benefits.
Division of marital debts — I will help to present compelling evidence of which debts should be shared and which should be the responsibility of one spouse.
Spousal support — Whether you seek alimony on a permanent or temporary basis, or must pay support, I will seek a fair determination in your best interest.
With commitment and conviction, I present strong arguments in support of arrangements that serve you and your children.
How your divorce plays out will depend on your unique circumstances. Most couples will first try to work things out in mediation rather than allowing a Judge decide the terms of their divorce. Mediation gives you and your spouse a structured forum to negotiate a divorce settlement, fosters cooperation between separating partners and lessens the stress and hostility that can come with a trial — while saving you time and money. If going to trial becomes necessary, I am a strong litigator at your side protecting your rights. I zealously prepare for trial and fight for your rights at every stage. My aggressive and compassionate approach alleviates some of the uncertainty and stress of the exhausting litigation process and can help you obtain the most favorable outcome.
