divorceDavid Vallone is a Suffolk County divorce attorney who will fight to protect you rights should you find yourself in court on a contested divorce case.  A contested divorce is any case where the parties cannot resolve their issues prior to one of the parties bringing a proceeding in court.  In the adversarial setting of a contested divorce, you will need an attorney with the ability and experience to zealously advocate on your behalf.  Most contested divorces involve several issues.  In cases where the couple has children, it is essential that issues of custody, parenting time, and decision-making authority be resolved fairly and that your interests, and those of your children, are adequately protected.

Financial support, in the form of child support or maintenance (also known as alimony), is another critical issue.  We can provide advice as to the appropriate amount of support and advocate effectively on your behalf before the court.

The third major area is known as Equitable Distribution.  We will make certain that the assets and debts which have accrued during the marriage are properly distributed between the parties.  We will also take the steps necessary to protect any separate property which you may be entitled to retain.

With 22 years of experience in contested divorce matters, David Vallone is able to advise you as to your rights and protect them in court.
