DIVORCE FOR MEN

If you are going through a divorce, child custody battle, or another matter relating to family law, it can be a confusing, lonely, and exhausting experience. You are probably uncertain about your rights and concerned about child custody, financial ramifications, and how best to protect yourself, your assets, and your family. While you may be aware that Florida statutes favor mothers and that as a father and a husband, you could already be at a disadvantage. The more prepared you are, and the sooner you seek legal counsel, the better!

Divorce is a Drastic Change — You Need a Guide

Divorce not only ends a marriage, but in many ways, changes the lifestyles that went with it.

I highly recommend John! He is very knowledgeable and always responded to me within 5 minutes. After letting go of 2 other terrible attorneys I was able to find John to represent me. He took my case on one month before trail was set and always informed me of things immediately. I had an overall great experience with him and I recommended him to anyone in need of an experienced attorney.

I contracted John in late October 2020. My divorce was final in May. I highly recommend this attorney for men seeking sound legal representation and would not hesitate to re engage him for any legal council. Johns knowledge, tenacity and straight forward approach are what got the job done. Even in the face of somewhat unique issues, Johns experience kept things moving along. Johns rigorous adherence and application of Florida family law, prevented the other attorney from engaging in any shenanigans. Likewise, Johns support staffs knowledge and professionalism, in my opinion are unparalleled. If you are in the unfortunate position of needing legal council, this is the man to have in your corner hands down!!!Jeff Rappaport

If I had the option to rate John 100 stars I would, I strongly recommend anybody going through a divorce to look no further!!!I have honestly never been more impressed with someone’s quality of work in my life.He is Extremely professional, knowledgeable, and has the utmost integrity. John set clear expectations from day one, he tells you what you NEED to hear, not what you want to hear (which I learned very quickly how important that was). He guided me through the whole process, was ALWAYS available, responded with in minutes by email or phone (personal cell phone I may add), and kept me in the loop about everything.Going through a divorce is already stressful enough, you're lawyer shouldn’t add to that, which is why I'm forever grateful for John’s representation. I will 100% Recommend him to anyone!If you want an aggressive, efficient, and knowledgeable attorney, just do yourself a favor and use John. He is the best of the best, and is the DEFINITION of what an attorney should be.

We met John through a friend's referral, and he didn't disappoint. John is very professional and effective in his specialties. Besides offering legal advices, he was able to analyze personal situations from the client's point of view and leverage his wealth of experience to help his clients to achieve the best outcome. Responsive and trustworthy. Highly recommend!

I wanted to be in my son's life, no matter what. No matter the cost. No matter the hassles. No matter the process. I told In Law We Trust this on our very first call. They wasted no time and got to work immediately. My case was resolved and now I have a court order in place in under 90 days which will make sure I am a part of my Son's life. I cannot thank them enough.

To be quite honest it has taken me awhile to write this review becuase I don't take it lightly, how much John did for me and my kids! To give you the short story. I wasn't going to get a lawyer for my divorce. My wife at the time had just filled out paperwork for us and then sent them to me to sign and give them to the judge to sign off on. Something in me told me to call a lawyer. I reached out to allot of lawyers. All of them told me what I wanted to hear, but one didn't super coat anything and was honest with me. And on top of that I reached out to him or there answering service at 5pm on a Sunday night and within 20 min John himself was texting me from his personal cell to call me. That speaks volumes to me. I hired him on the spot after that phone call. My divorce took about 6 months id say and in those 6 months I think I talked to his parealegal a couple times. The rest of the time it was John himself. If I was worried about something or had a question. Id text him and he would always respond. When I first hired him I was thinking I would only have my kids maybe 40 nights a year. I never cared about child support, I just wanted as much time with my kids as possible. I had told John that the one thing I had always wanted in life was to be a father and to see my kids everyday. And now that was all taken from me with the snap of a finger. And to say the least I was a wreck. He reassured me that I had nothing to worry about to trust him. And I did, I trusted him with my life and my kids lives. And end the end, he was right. I got me everything I wanted and more. I thought id be living at home forever because I would owe so much child support per month but again he made sure that, that didn't happen. Its hard to put into words how much he did for me and my family. But hopefully if you are on the fence on wether or not to hire him this will help! Thank You John....

I would like to take this opportunity to express my appreciation for the hard work John DeGirolamo at In Law We Trust, P.A. provided me. He was extremely professional and treated me with the utmost respect. Every question I had was answered quickly and efficiently. Every email and phone call was responded to in a timely manner with detail. To say I could not of had the result I had without him would be a dramatic understatement. My hat is off to John and I will forever be indebted to his service. Thank you very much!

The number of high quality reviews I read while researching divorce attorneys, particularly those specializing in alimony is what drew my interest, John didn’t disappoint. He was upfront, consistent and completely honest in terms of expectations.Responsive and always available, John on several occasions answered questions and addressed concerns late evenings and on weekends.Professional and courteous, the polar opposite of the opposing attorney. John made me comfortable and confident in an unpleasant situation, all while achieving results that were well above what was expected.If you are feeling out of your depth in this arena; make the right decision, trust the reviews/results and hire this man. He will be efficient with your time and effective in representing you.

Words cannot express my sincerest gratitude for John DeGirolamo, Esq and his team! From the consultation on day one, to the finalization of my divorce a few months later, Mr. DeGirolamo demonstrated the utmost professionalism and work ethic when it came to my case. Communication was superb as he explained the whole process, his strategy towards the end goal and responded quickly to any questions I had regardless of time of day. Personally, I find it rare for men to “come out on top”, as every situation and outcome is different. But I’m sincerely grateful for Mr. DeGirolamo and his In Law We Trust team, for my outcome would’ve been much different, more expensive and been in a different mental state had I gone elsewhere. If you’re shopping for divorce lawyers, especially Lawyers for Men, look no further. This is the only law firm you’ll need. There’s a reason why there’s a 4.8+ rating with the large amount of reviewers. Statistically speaking, you won’t be disappointed by choosing him to represent you.

John was everything I was looking for and more in an attorney. If you are looking for someone who will tell you what you need to hear and not just what you want to hear, he is it. He worked through my case quickly and had zero intentions of nickel and diming me to death like most other attorneys and he was more responsive to my texts than any one I know. It didn't matter how small of an issue it was, there was not one instance that I had texted him and he didn't get back to me within a few hours. He even returned texts on a Sunday and while he was out of town on vacation. If you are a guy looking for a great attorney, contact John!

John was very honest and straight forward from the beginning. I appreciated that very much. His goal is to help you out. He sees you more as a human being, rather than just a client. He even gave me his personal cellphone and always responded quickly. He was always professional. He even gave me advice to look for an attorney in another county as it would save me money rather than trying to rip me off. After some investigation I still ended up going with him. In the end right before mediation, my divorce was called off by my wife and I. Even then John was a pleasure to have as an attorney and even his office staff, like Suzie, were professional, responsive and courteous. I always got a monthly statement on the retainer, and I didn’t have to worry about much throughout the process. He made me feel confident with getting my son back in town and happy about choosing him as my attorney. I would recommend anybody who is looking for a honest, hard working and professional attorney, hire John.

I honestly do not think that you can ever find a better lawyer than John , My divorce case is not finished yet but i cannot wait to write a good review about him, I have dealt with another lawyer before john and the case was not moving at all , when I hired John as my lawyer things started to move quickly, What I really like about him is his prompt response to emails and texts and phone calls , he is working on my case even when he is On VACATION !!! 10/10

… do yourself a favor and hire a professional to represent you during your divorce proceedings, don’t try to go at it alone (it will save you a ton of money and a whole lot of emotional suffering). And when you have decided to hire a professional, don’t waste your time searching for the right Lawyer (I have already done the research for you). John DeGirolamo is an outstanding family lawyer that will represent your rights relentlessly. Regardless if your divorce is amicable or not, he will make sure that fair deal is reached with your spouse. He is always available when you need him and has surrounded himself with an outstanding team of professionals that will hold your hand throughout this very complicated process.

I Frankie Harris married for four years with a woman who didn’t love me for me, only married me for money and cheated on me when I was outta town working. The divorce process was moving towards my X-wife favor, who later tried to put me on Child support with a baby that wasn’t minds from the start. Later near to the end of my divorce proceedings, family and friends said I needed a lawyer. That’s when I found Mr. John DeGirolamo who later helped me out big time, that man knows his stuff. Very professional and straight to the point/ ready to fight for his clients. Now I’m a free man with no worries, THANK YOU AGAIN.....Mr. DeGirolamo

In Law We Trust greatly exceeded my expectations. I was being bullied to the tune of thousands of dollars. I called John, he told me to fight it. During the pre-trial conference - the team saw something in the agreement and a judge was brought in. The case was dismissed with prejudice, meaning, the bully can never try it again! Not only did I save thousands, but I got peace of mind, which is more valuable. I trust, In Law We Trust!

Hit hard emotionally by my spouse’s request for a divorce I stumbled chaotically through all the mediation and hearings with my first attorney. Switching my representation to John G DeGirolamo is one choice I will never regret. John is cool, confident, and well informed and will tell you exactly how it is, which helped me make some of the hard decisions that come about during divorce proceedings. I would highly recommend John G DeGirolamo to stand with you through any ordeal that requires representation, I found that he is the best attorney to have on your side.

Attorney John DeGirolamo has an understanding of my situation, sets realistic expectations, and handles the case professionally and efficiently. His administrative team is responsive and helpful. My case was able to be processed quickly (even through Covid-19 Coronavirus Pandemic) from filing in March 2020 to trial/final judgement in October 2020. He was able to work through the difficulties of my living situation, being remote in Illinois, and my family situation, being in Florida. I recommend and will refer to others seeking legal advice for family matters. -KO

John D. was a tremendous divorce lawyer and had my best interests during a difficult time. Divorces can be tough financially and emotionally and John made sure I was up to speed on everything and he definitely had my back during mediation. His team was quick in filing paper work and they made it easy for me to get everything I needed over to them so they could do their part. They picked up every time I called and responded in a very timely and prompt manner every time as well. I would call my outcome "successful" giving the alternatives the ex-spouse was requesting. I ended up in my "best case" scenario and I am thankful for John D. and his team. Thank you again,

John put me at ease instantly on the phone and, after I had spoken to several other attorneys, won my business and my trust. He did not let me down. His staff was very professional and worked with me at times of my choosing. John was personally available, typically within minutes, via text, emails, and phone calls. He never failed to contact me back when I had questions and needed further guidance. His retainer fee was extremely reasonable and he made it very easy to make payments online. Most importantly is that my divorce case went almost 100% as he predicted that it would. We were able to settle the case in mediation and I ever had to go to court. I am completely satisfied with the outcome of my case and am so thankful that I choose "In Law We Trust, P.A. to handle this difficult time in my life.Thanks John, and all of your staff!!!

John was amazing and exactly what I needed for my divorce case. I had an attorney prior to hiring John and we spent almost 10 months getting nothing accomplished. I hired John and he resolved the issue of alimony in the first 2 weeks. After that he kept the ball rolling and within 3 months the divorce was finalized.When we started the divorce process my ex wife was determined to take me for everything she could. John helped protect my rights to equal distribution and equal custody. The amount of money spent vs saved was very much worth it. I wish I had found In Law We Trust the first time!Also I was very impressed that every time I reached out to John he was there and responded within minutes, not days or weeks. (even at 10pm)

I am very thankful to have had John on my side throughout a very difficult experience. John surpassed all expectations when it came to knowledge, support and availability. John's confidence and honesty were the most valuable benefits when dealing with the difficult decisions and the ups-and-downs that come along. Many stressful moments can result in short sighted tunnel vision - I thank John for always being accessible to discuss matters frankly, and to better allow for proper decisions to be made. I am so thankful to have worked with John and the entire team at his firm.

John was straight and to the point. He was flexible and adapted to exactly how I wanted my case to unfold. All of the paperwork was organized and when it came time to present to the judge he had me ready to go with no issues. Smooth process. Thanks John.

Had a very good experience with this law firm! With having a very difficult divorce case...He was firm on me to make sure I was motivated in getting all the paperwork in on a timely manner and contacting the other attorneys getting things rolling...

I am both grateful and thankful for the work John did with my case. He was thorough and detailed each step of the way. Additionally, John is easily accessible via email and his personal cell phone (at any time of the day - no exaggeration. Our first phone call was at 8:00pm on a weekday.) He made decisions based on my best interest. I would highly recommend John and his team!

I have worked many cases with John DeGirolamo as his investigator and process server. Every case I receive from him, he always puts extreme effort into the best outcome for his clients. I've worked with hundreds of attorneys over the past 10 years, and I can say, John DeGirolamo is one of the best in the bay area.

Tons of thanks go out to you John! Handled my divorce extremely well, while observing and keeping my best interests and opinions in the foreground of the strategy. While not the most complex financial situation in my case, the details and needs of our specific scenario were tough to accomplish and to couldn’t have asked for a better result.Most RESPECTED trait: told me what I need to hear and gave me honest feedback about my hopes and plans with what would actually work (didn’t appease me and waste money filing things that won’t be successful). I felt informed and looked after the entire case.Most SURPRISING trait [for an attorney]: (sorry for profiling and being judgmental to the other attorneys of the world) I must have made 75 short phone calls to him over the course of the case and he never billed me for the time. Never saw one example indicating he was out to acquire a percentage of my percentage. Always felt he was out to get me and my daughter to a better place. Truly acted for me not himself!Most TELLING example of dedication to clients: Expeditiously re-filed paperwork I screwed up on from Paris France only bc of my PREFERENCE (not need) to “file as soon as is reasonable”. 20 min later (at what I can only assume was like 3am across the Atlantic)I didn’t even wait until the case had a judgment rendered before referring my coworker to him for a similar situation. Confidence was that strong.My case is now over and I feel like I got all I could ask for at a minimum investment! Also know that I walked away from this with a great lawyer, but also acquired a friend. It’s rare you see someone have such a vested interest in you and the well-being of your loved ones.Thanks again John!! Can’t say enough about your efforts. Hopefully I don’t... but if I ever need an attorney you’re my guy!

I consulted with a number of attorneys before I called In Law We Trust. From the very first phone call, John was able to put my mind at ease and give me options with my case that I did not know existed. He was always very prompt (even on a Sunday) and professional. He gave me all of my options and explained possible outcomes along the way. We reached an agreement in my family law case and everything was finalized quicker than I could have even imagined. Thanks for all of your hard work! If I ever face another legal matter I know exactly who to call!!

At one of the lowest points in my life of getting a divorce in searching for a divorce lawyer on a weekend getting in touch with John and answering all my questions he made me feel so comfortable and confident that he can work the case and get the results. I have never had a lawyer like John the rapid response at any time is unheard of and I thank him from the bottom of my heart and urge if anyone needs a divorce lawyer to look no further.

John represented me on a Custody Dispute. I will have to say that he is the best lawyer you could possibly get legal advise from. He spends a substantial amount of time to ensure your case is always top priority. The previously law firm I was using, loved to bill me and send me nonsense emails to rack up the legal fees and got nothing done but milk me dry... John is cut and dry to the point, tells you what he’s going to do, how it’s going to help you and gets it done!!! Call John!

John helped me with my case every step of the way. He made me feel very comfortable as I went through this uncomfortable process. He was very thorough and very professional. Every time I had a question, even if it was late in the evening or a weekend, I don't think I ever waited longer than 3 minutes for a response. I would highly recommend him!

John is an outstanding attorney! From day one he set his expectations and never once did he fall short of anything. He has a very stern and bold personality and that’s exactly what is needed in an attorney, especially if you want to get what you requested. In my opinion my case was a bumpy back and forth, up and down rollercoaster. John walked through the coal with me and step by step guided meto success. I got everything I asked for. Literally everything. John also took into consideration my income and when he could of been a jerk at times and charged me for random text and calls, he understood my pain and assured me thinks would workout. I would definitely recommend John to anyone who ask!

John represented me on a residential property dispute with a neighbor who wanted to continue to appeal to the court for a decision that would be favorable to them through repeated hearings. John prevailed, we won the case, and he did it with competence and professionalism. High recommend him.

John is an absolutely fantastic attorney! Going through a child custody battle can be incredibly difficult, but John made the whole experience as smooth as these things can possibly be. He is very informative and honest, and was always available no matter what. I felt comfortable with his advice and decisions throughout the entire process and would definitely recommend him to anyone!

It was a pleasure to work with John and his team. He kept it real with no sugar coating. His aggressive approach in mediation got me the results that I wanted. I highly recommend. He uses all forms of communication and is very easy to get ahold. He will even even answer your text after hours/weekends. I absolutely love this guy.

Tampa Divorce for Men

So, what areas of family law can we help you navigate?

Child Custody & Visitation

Divorce and family law proceedings bring several legal issues into play, particularly when children are involved. One of the most difficult aspects is working out a parenting plan and arranging schedules in the children’s best interests, while also accommodating the demands on parents’ lives. A parenting plan establishes legal custody to decide who makes the decisions regarding the health, welfare, education, and religious upbringing, as well as, physical custody to decide who the children live with, including providing daily needs, food, shelter, clothing, transportation to school and social events, and finally parenting time to determine the non-custodial parent’s appropriate time with the children.

Banking & Finances

There are many misconceptions about the division of property during a divorce, and some of those misconceptions have to do with the division of bank accounts. The divorce court judge will determine whether the funds are joint property or one spouse’s separate property by applying Florida state law. Getting what is rightfully yours in a divorce, no matter whose name is listed on the asset, can be complicated. Our firm works with men just like you, who do not want to take a chance with their future financial well-being. As your legal counsel, we will make sure that you not only understand your rights but are confident that your assets and best interests are always represented.

Child Support

Florida Child Support Guidelines dictate child support calculations. However, some couples have special situations that require a more customized approach. The courts will attempt to estimate how much the parents would have spent on their children if they remained together. We work to see that child support payments are structured to make sure both parents pay their fair share of the financial responsibilities.

Equitable Distribution

In Law We Trust, P.A. helps clients obtain values for the assets accumulated during the marriage, including real estate, retirement funds, business interests, bank accounts, and prized possessions. We also help identify accrued debt and other obligations. Our firm’s specialist expertise in understanding Florida Law and Fathers’ Rights and will ensure that there is a thorough examination of all of the financial factors involved.

Alimony & Spousal Support

Today, both spouses are often working, and not every divorce involves alimony. The crucial factors in awarding alimony are determining the extent of a spouse’s inability to be self-supportive, along with the lifestyle previously maintained during the marriage. In a household with only one spouse working, things can get complicated and emotional, but the Law Offices of In Law We Trust, P.A. know how to manage such issues and keep the emotion out of it.

Learn More

Domestic Violence

Domestic Violence is often either a cause or symptom of family issues and divorce. The main priority is ensuring safety for victims. That can be done through a protective order or restraining order, which Florida statutes refer to as an “injunction for protection.” Unfortunately, this is often a necessary step taken by family members who are fearful of their domestic situation. Whether you are the protected person, or the opposing party, be sure to seek legal counsel.

FIRM OVERVIEW

We believe in giving men going through a divorce in Tampa, FL the right tools. As a result, our firm is dedicated to four core principles in every case.


Fearless Use of the Court System

Many attorneys fail to use the court system to their client’s advantage, will shy away from a court hearing, and try to convince their clients to settle. In reality, a better outcome is likely found in court, or a better settlement can be negotiated and achieved before a hearing. Our opponents usually fear the courtroom. Court is stressful for attorneys and clients, difficult to predict, and may expose the lesser attorney’s limitations. We excel in the courtroom, and proceed to trial with confidence, expertise, and a commitment to our clients. Attorneys hate to lose, but at In Law We Trust, P.A., we love to win!


Direct Contact

As a client, you deserve direct and frequent communication with your attorneys. In Law We Trust, P.A. is structured so that you will have access to, and be dealing with, a family law attorney for men, not an employee of the attorney. Your concerns are important and your case is always handled in a very personalized manner. You can count on us to be attentive and responsive to your needs.


The Truth, Even When it Hurts

Most attorneys tend to tell people what they want to hear. This is especially true at the beginning of the representation, before the hard work starts. As family attorneys for men in Tampa, FL, we don’t think this is helpful to clients, and in fact, we are sure this approach harms a client’s case. We are not shy about telling our clients what we think they need to do, whether they want to hear it or not. Of course, what to do is up to our clients, but they never lack for strong, helpful guidance. Bottom line: you will get the truth – good, bad, or ugly – from us at all times, because that is what you will need to be successful in this process.


We Protect Florida Fathers’ Rights In Divorce

Our goal for you is fair financial obligations with meaningful time sharing. If you are without children, we will work diligently to protect the financial status you have worked so hard to obtain. At In Law We Trust, P.A. we understand the unique needs of men in divorce and related legal proceedings – we have dedicated our practice to fighting for men’s rights. We will work to protect your financial interests in divorce, such as setting reasonable and fair child support and/or alimony support, and make sure you retain your parental rights in child custody and visitation litigation.

If you wish to speak to a men’s divorce attorney in Tampa, FL, about your family law concerns, please contact us today. John DeGirolamo, Esq is a family and divorce lawyer dedicated to representing men.
