Hometown Legal Support For Florida Families

Guiding You Through The Challenges Of Divorce

Last updated on June 5, 2024

Divorce is one of life’s most difficult transitions. While it’s understandable to focus on the emotional toll it can take on you and your family, the dissolution of marriage is also a legal process that affects every aspect of your life.

That’s why it is crucial to have experienced advocates on your side. At Akin Law P.A., we are here to help you navigate the complexities of divorce law in DeLand and Volusia County, protecting your best interests.

Helping You Understand The Divorce Process

Even when things go smoothly, divorce can feel like a daunting journey. We are here to explain each step and provide the support you need.

From the initial filing to the final decree, our attorneys will help you understand your rights and the legal procedures. We work tirelessly to make the process as seamless as possible, so you can focus on moving forward.

Custody Arrangements Focused On Your Children

When children are involved, we prioritize their best interests. Florida law requires parents to create a parenting plan that outlines time-sharing and parental responsibilities. This can be challenging when parents have different goals.

Our compassionate guidance focuses on a parenting plan reflecting your family’s needs and serving the best interests of your children. We work diligently to resolve any differences to find a plan that works for your family.

Protecting Your Financial Well-Being

We understand that property division is a critical concern in any divorce. Florida’s equitable distribution laws dictate that marital assets and debts should be divided fairly. These can include:

  • Real estate holdings, such as the marital home and investment properties
  • Checking and savings accounts, both joint and separate
  • Investment accounts, including stocks, bonds, IRAs, 401(k)s and pensions
  • Cash value of life insurance policies
  • Business interests
  • Jewelry, art, antiques and collectibles
  • Debts, including mortgages, car loans, medical bills and credit card debt

It’s essential to note that a “fair” distribution doesn’t necessarily mean “equal.” That’s why our lawyers will meticulously analyze your financial situation to protect your interests in the division of assets and, if applicable, the determination of alimony.

Your Advocates For A Fresh Start

With decades of experience, we provide detail-oriented and personalized guidance through every aspect of the legal process. Plus, we’re here for you at every stage of life, including adjusting estate planning goals after a divorce.

We believe in a hands-on approach, meaning you’ll always speak directly with us, not paralegals. Our goal is to empower you with the knowledge and support you need to make informed decisions.
