If you need help with a divorce, contact me,
Jacksonville Attorney David "Craig" Calley. I have over a decade of
experience with the resolution of legal matters. I have handled
cases ranging from simple, uncontested cases to complex
property division and child custody disputes.
I work directly with you to help you identify and define what's
most important to you, and to anticipate the problems that
might come up in your case. My goal for all of my clients is
to help you achieve your objectives with a minimum of stress,
uncertainty, or expense.
For divorce clients with no children, no real estate, and
no significant debts, I can prepare and file a petition for
dissolution of your marriage on terms that anyone can afford.
A simple and inexpensive divorce is usually sufficient to meet
the needs of anyone whose marriage lasted no more than a few
years, and I take pride in my ability to keep my clients' legal
In other cases, the time and effort
necessary to successfully conclude your divorce case will
depend on many factors, such as the nature and extent of
the marital assets and debts, each spouse's ability to maintain
a reasonable standard of living, and perhaps most frequently,
whether the divorcing spouses can agree on questions concerning
child custody and child
Most of my clients recognize that it is in their interests
to negotiate and reach agreement on issues that are likely
to present problems. When you're able to compromise on disputed
questions, you don't have to worry about the decision the Family
Court Judge might reach on the question. One of my main jobs
is to make sure that you understand your rights and responsibilities
in a divorce case, so that you will neither have to settle
for an unfavorable result, nor hold out for something that
goes beyond your rights under Florida family and matrimonial
law. I can help guide you toward an agreement that meets your
needs and goals.
When it is necessary to go to court to establish and enforce
your rights, however, I have the skill and experience necessary
to put your best case forward, even when expert testimony and
highly technical evidence are required to prove the facts that
will support your legal claim or defense.
