So, what areas of family law can we help you navigate?
CHILD CUSTODY AND 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 — deciding who makes the decisions regarding the health, welfare, education, and religious upbringing of the children
- Physical custody — deciding who the children live with, including providing for the child’s daily needs, food, shelter, clothing, transportation to school and social events
- Parenting time — determining the non-custodial parent’s appropriate time with the children
We’ll help you develop a sensible, workable parenting plan aligned with the best interest of your children.
Florida Child Support Guidelines dictate child support calculations. However, some couples have special situations that require a more customized approach. We work to see that child support payments are structured to make sure both parents pay their fair share of the financial responsibilities.
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.

ALIMONY ATTORNEY FOR MEN
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.
DOMESTIC VIOLENCE ATTORNEY FOR MEN
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.
DEPARTMENT OF CHILDREN AND FAMILIES ATTORNEY FOR MEN
Any criminal law allegations concerning yourself, your spouse and/or your children may bring about an investigation by a child protection investigator with the Florida Department of Children and Families. The Department may attempt to take the children out of your home unless or until the parent performs certain tasks such as frequent drug testing, weeks of parenting classes, or participation in family counseling. If you feel the original allegations are false, you need an aggressive defense attorney to fight for your and your family’s rights.

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!

The Truth, Even When it Hurts

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.
