Attorney in Winter Haven, Florida
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 understand 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.
I handle most matters related to or arising out of divorce, including child custody and visitation, as well as child support. I advise clients in stepparent and grandparent adoptions, in addition to placement adoptions between birth parents and adoptive parents. I also counsel clients in paternity actions and prenuptial/postnuptial agreements.
I work with clients at all stages of a divorce, from the initial filing through negotiated settlements, mediation, and trial, if necessary. I handle all matters related to or arising out of divorce, including child custody and visitation, child support, alimony and the division of marital debts and assets.
If you have been named as the executor, personal representative or administrator of an estate, I can help you successfully take the estate through the probate process and settle the estate. I will oversee the preparation of an inventory of assets, the payment of all debts and obligations of the estate, and the orderly distribution of the assets of the estate.
If you have decided that bankruptcy is your best course of action for resolving your personal financial challenges, I can help you determine whether to file under Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 and can take care of all the filings for you. I will also make certain that you know what debts can and cannot be discharged in bankruptcy and that you claim all the exemptions allowed for your personal assets.
Other Areas of Practice
I also assist clients in drafting wills, trusts, durable powers of attorney and health care directives. Also contact me if you need assistance with small business litigation, forming corporations and limited liability companies.
