Protect your child and your future with the help of a Tampa Bay family lawyer for divorce, child custody, alimony and paternity.
Family law involves deeply emotional aspects of our lives, including everything from ending spousal relationships to deciding how children will be raised. When you’re facing a situation like getting divorced, setting up child custody, paying alimony or questioning paternity, you need an experienced Tampa Bay family law attorney by your side.
In Florida, there is no assumption that any person will automatically win a family law case. This means a mother will not automatically be given full custody of children, a nonworking spouse may or may not receive alimony in a divorce and a man may have to mount a legal challenge to prove he is the father of a child.
That’s why you need a family law attorney who can help you stand up for your rights. At Kemp, Ruge & Green Law Group, we have decades of experience with many types of family law cases. We understand how to protect you while also keeping the best interests of children at heart. You can rely on us to lend a sympathetic ear and help you skillfully navigate Tampa Bay’s complex family law system.
You Deserve a Great Team

If child custody isn’t handled carefully, it can have a negative effect on children. However, if you can handle it calmly with the help of a Tampa Bay child custody lawyer, your children will have a much better experience.
In Florida, child custody laws are based on finding what’s in the best interests of children. The courts look closely at your relationship with your child, along with how well you can offer them stability, safety, food, clothing, love and affection. Many aspects of your lives may be examined, including your physical, mental and financial health. This can be an intimidating process and we’d like to help take a weight off your shoulders. We can provide the legal support you need for your child custody case.

A judge typically awards alimony payments to maintain a certain standard of living after a divorce. The higher earner typically makes payments to support their ex-spouse and prevent them from having a poor standard of living in the future.
There are four types of alimony: permanent, temporary, rehabilitative and reimbursement. Your alimony lawyer at Kemp, Ruge & Green can help you understand which of these may apply in your situation and how you should interact with the court and your ex-spouse.

Sometimes a genetic paternity test is required to establish a man’s legal connection to his child. These are often confusing and emotional situations because they affect a family’s future and can really shake up children’s lives.
For women, paternity cases are typically about establishing the identity of a child’s father and perhaps holding him responsible for supporting the child until adulthood. For men, proving paternity confirms their role as the child’s father and allows them to seek visitation with a child.
