Here to Help You With Even the Most Difficult Circumstances

Going through a divorce can be one of the most emotional and stressful times in a person’s life. Combine the emotions with anger and uncertainty about the future, and you get a potentially volatile situation that could lead to lengthy and bitter litigation.

My name is Kathleen S. Davies, and I am here to help. At the Orlando, Cocoa and Kissimmee offices of The Davies Law Firm, LLC, my job is to remove the emotions from the decision-making process. I help my clients act in the best interest of their children, putting aside negative or hurtful feelings they may have against their spouse. While I prefer to try to reach collaborative or mediated solutions whenever possible, if necessary, I will not hesitate to take your case to trial if that would yield the best result. Typically, both parties benefit from non-litigated solutions, as they are more cost-effective and take the least amount of time.

As a Florida Supreme Court-Certified Civil Mediator, I can help clients use innovative strategies to achieve effective resolutions. The longer a divorce plays out, the harder it is to resolve. More time, money and stress result from delaying the process. While I am always looking out for what is best for my clients and their families, I am also looking to make the process both effective and efficient.

Resolving Issues Related to Divorce

Many of the divorces I handle for clients in Florida are uncontested, where both spouses have already arrived at agreements about the main issues and are ready to move on. Other divorces involve disagreements over the apportionment of considerable and complex assets and the valuation of business interests and retirement funds. In either scenario, I endeavor to zealously represent my client and work toward an amicable, equitable resolution.

My firm can help you resolve a wide range of contentious issues including:

  • Division of marital assets, debts and property, including complex assets
  • Child custody and visitation rights
  • Disagreements over who gets the family home
  • Child support
  • Spousal support (commonly called “spousal maintenance” or “alimony”)
  • Modifications of support and custody agreements

Another benefit of resolving these issues amicably is the power that couples retain over these decisions, instead of having a judge make the decisions for them. Through mediation or collaborative law, my clients can often settle their differences cooperatively.
