family law attorney or divorce lawyer... We Can Help You
Divorce, child support, child custody, and other family law related cases are usually filed in the county where both parties
reside. As you know, Deland is located in Volusia County, Florida. Therefore, if you and your spouse reside in Deland, your
Deland divorce, alimony, child custody, modification, visitation, child support, relocation, juvenile dependency, or other family
law related case, would usually be filed with the Court in Volusia County.
If you reside in Deland and the other party resides in
another city located in Volusia County, like in the above
examples, your Deland family law related case would
usually still be filed with the Court in Volusia County.
But if you reside in Deland and the other party resides in a
city outside Volusia County, your Deland divorce or other
family law related case would not necessarily have to be
filed with the Court in Volusia County, but could
nevertheless be filed with the Court in Volusia County.

Lawyer Advertising. Whether you are looking for a Deland Divorce Lawyer, a Deland Family Law Attorney, or a
Deland Child Custody Lawyer, the hiring of a lawyer is an important decision that should not be based solely upon
advertisements. Before you decide, ask us to send you free written information about our qualifications and experience.
Similarly, if you are the unmarried parent of a child and you live
with the other parent in Deland, your Deland child custody,
modification, child support, paternity, visitation, relocation, juvenile
dependency, or other type of family law case, would typically be
filed with the Court in Volusia County.
However, as noted above, it is not the city of residence but the
county of residence which determines with what Court a divorce or
other type of family law case should be filed. And naturally, the
marital status of the parties is not a relevant factor for purposes of
determining with what Court a family law case should be filed.

The City of Deland is named after its founder Henry Deland. In March of 1876, Deland, who lived in New York
and had made a fortune in the baking soda business, went to visit some relatives in South Carolina. After Deland
arrived in South Carolina, Deland's brother-in-law, who had recently purchased some land in Florida, convinced
Deland to travel with him to Florida to see the land.
Shortly thereafter, Deland and his brother-in-law traveled into the area that later would become known as Deland.
Deland was so impressed with the area that by the end of the day, Deland himself had purchased 159 acres. On his
visit, Deland met with several of the settlers in the area and saw the great potential for development.
When Deland returned in October, Deland purchased more land and met with the settlers again. Deland shared with
them his vision of a town based on culture and education and donated land and funds to further its development.
Then, in December, Deland again returned to the area and once again met with the settlers. At that meeting in 1876,
Deland and the settlers voted to name their community "Deland."
