Defend Your Best Interests In A Divorce
The divorce process comes with many unknowns. You have your children to protect, assets to separate and your future to consider. Especially if your relationship with your spouse is contentious, making all the necessary decisions can be difficult to deal with. You need the assistance of an attorney to help you through.
Let Timothy S. Keough be the experienced lawyer you choose. From our office in Tavares, Florida, we help different individuals through the divorce process. With over 25 years of experience, you can be confident in Mr. Keough’s ability to represent you.
We Are Prepared For Anything
Below are some common questions clients often ask Mr. Keough:
- How long will the process take? Each case is different. Factors such as amount of assets, whether or not you have children, how amicable your relationship is and other elements have an impact on how long it will take to get the divorce finalized.
- What can I do to get custody of my children? In Florida, 50-50 child custody is not automatically granted. Whether you are the father or mother, the court will determine what the best interests of your children are, and we will advocate for them at every step to fight for the best custody and visitation plans.
- How will our assets be divided? Florida is considered an equitable distribution state. This means that marital assets will be divided in a manner that is fair to both parties. However, we understand how important your personal assets are, and we will do what we can to ensure they remain in your possession.
- What about child support and alimony? You and your children deserve to be financially secure. These financial supports are not meant to break the bank of the person giving them, nor are they “free money” for the person receiving them. They are based on need and ability to pay.
Not every divorce needs to go through the difficult process of being contested, and there may be an option that benefits everyone.
Keep Things Civil With Uncontested Divorce
When both parties agree to settling things in a civil manner, an uncontested divorce may be right for you. This route considerably reduces the amount of time, money and energy used to reach the end of a divorce. We can help you file all the necessary paperwork to complete your divorce without having to go to trial. In some cases, mediation can keep both sides in a calm and collected state, while you both compromise on how to settle your divorce. Attorney Keough is also certified in mediation if you are looking for a mediator to act as a neutral party.
