Florida Family Law
Full-service family law firm in Gainesville
Whether you are experiencing the pain of marital conflict or facing another legal issue close to home, involving your children or family, Thérèse Misita Truelove, P.A. listens to your needs, understands your concerns and helps you reach solutions to your legal problems.
We have served families in Gainesville for more than 10 years. We provide legal services across a wide spectrum of areas, including:
Child custody and visitation
For every parent, child custody is the most heart-wrenching aspect of divorce or separation of non-married parents. We advocate for your parental rights so you can raise your children in an appropriate and healthy home.
Both parents share the responsibility of raising a child. At Thérèse Misita Truelove, P.A., we help ensure your child receives the financial support required for a healthy, happy upbringing.
Child support modification and enforcement
Child support payments remain the same unless and until the court modifies the child support order. If either parent experiences a significant change in financial circumstances, we can guide you through the proper legal procedures to modify your child support payments accordingly.
Throughout your divorce, we stand by you. We accompany you through mediation or litigation, depending on which is likely to obtain the best possible results for you — including fair distribution of assets, division of the marital home, child support payments and child custody rights.
Juvenile delinquency and dependency proceedings
When Florida authorities interfere with your parental rights, you need a compassionate advocate who understands the bureaucratic red tape. We are skilled at maneuvering through the complex laws of Florida to protect your parental rights and the rights of your children.
Mediation puts the decisions in your hands and can often provide more expedient, predictable results than a trial. We can help you obtain the most favorable settlement using mediation.
Despite or because of the marked increases in the numbers of divorces and single parents, more and more fathers desire to actively participate in their children’s formative years. Whether your unique personal situation involves a father’s right to be closer to a child or the intention to prove paternity, we are available to help.
We can counsel you if you’re a mother who wants to use a paternity suit to identify the father of your child for purposes of establishing child support obligations. We also represent fathers whose paternity suits are aimed at gaining child custody and visitation rights, as well as those who want to establish that they are not a father in a given case. We can call on DNA testing resources to establish or disprove paternity, and we negotiate and draft relevant documents for our clients.
