Help With Divorce and Other Family Law Issues

At the Family Law Practice of David A. Montgomery, I believe that marriage is a covenant between a man and a woman, to be honored by the parties, respected by society, and encouraged by all. As a consequence, I am available to selectively represent parties in a divorce action who agree with this view of marriage.

Where one spouse seeks a divorce on the grounds of incompatibility or similar reasons, I am available to represent the other spouse in defense of the divorce. Also, where a spouse has violated their marriage vows of fidelity and faithfulness, I am available to initiate a divorce for the offended spouse.

Vigorously Defending Your Interests

In all divorce cases that I accept, my goal is to vigorously defend the rights of my client and to protect the best interests of any children involved. My representation includes all issues associated with the divorce process, including: identifying the grounds for divorce, division of property and debts, child custody and visitation, spousal support (alimony), and where necessary orders of protection. I also represent parties who seek a legal separation as an alternative to divorce.

I understand that a divorce is one of the most challenging and painful experiences you will go through in your lifetime. I am available to walk with you through the process, guiding you through the many complex and difficult decisions you will have to make. I strive to undertake my work in a manner that does not increase the hostility common in divorce litigation and that leaves open the door for possible reconciliation or a respectful relationship after divorce.

I opened the Family Law Practice of David A. Montgomery in Knoxville with a goal of providing families in East Tennessee with a broad range of services to help them overcome legal hurdles that sometimes affect our everyday lives.
