Family Law Attorney in Winter Haven, Florida
Experienced Counsel in Polk County and Hillsborough County
When you have a family matter that needs to be resolved, whether it is a determination of child custody and visitation or the successful completion of an adoption, you want an experienced lawyer to protect your interests. Custody and visitation matters can be highly emotional and adoption proceedings can be complex and confusing.
At the office of Rodney Durrance, Jr., Attorney at Law, I bring almost 40 years of experience to clients throughout Polk County and Hillsborough County. I bring a vast amount of knowledge and experience to individuals with family law needs, from child custody and support issues to adoptions. I know that legal issues can have an emotional impact and provide compassionate representation that is forceful when necessary to protect your interests. Contact my office to schedule an initial consultation.
Divorce and Family Law Matters
In my family law practice, I handle a wide range of issues arising out of or related to divorce, including disputes involving:
- Child custody. I will help you establish and implement custody arrangements that are in the best interests of your children while protecting your rights as a parent.
- Child support. I will review any proposed support orders to ensure that they are in compliance with Florida guidelines. I will also confirm that all relevant income has been properly considered, including self-employment, seasonal and commission income.
Requests for modification or enforcement of existing orders. If your divorce judgment is final, but your circumstances have changed dramatically, I can help you file a motion for child custody modification or child support modification. Likewise, if your spouse is not complying with a court order, I can help you use the power of the court to enforce the divorce decree.
Other Family Law Services
I represent individuals and families in other matters, including adoptions, paternity actions, and the negotiation and implementation of prenuptial and postnuptial agreements. In my adoption practice, I handle a lot of stepparent and grandparent adoptions, but I also counsel adoptive parents and birth parents in placement adoptions. I work with men and women in paternity disputes, helping clients establish or refute paternity and address issues involving child support and visitation.
