About Thor

Learn Thor’s areas of practice.

5
Practice areas
  1. Child custody
    20%
    Custody/timesharing can come from a divorce, or through establishing legal paternity when a child is born out of wedlock. I also help modify existing custody orders to help men be more involved with their kids' lives.

  2. Child support
    20%
    I represent men in establishing child support, as well as modifying the amount based on substantial changes in circumstance. I also deal with issues pertaining to Department of Revenue actions.

  3. Divorce and separation
    20%
    Although I deal with most aspects of family law, my main focus is representing men in divorce. I have gone through a divorce in Hillsborough County myself and can relate to the challenges men face.

  4. Domestic violence
    20%
    DV allegations and false abuse claims can be a common occurrence in toxic relationships, especially during a divorce. Protecting yourself from an unwarranted injunction is vital, especially when trying to obtain custody of your children

  5. Family
    20%
    Besides men's divorce, I also handle various other issues including: modifications of alimony, post/pre-nuptial agreements, enforcement and contempt, dependency, and paternity.

Amazing service
I would definitely hire Thor again. He is very professional, and he always made sure my questions were answered no matter what it was. Thanks to Thor I was able to have a nice and smooth divorce and was able to obtain 50/50 custody. I highly recommend this attorney.

Great lawyer
This lawyer is very thorough and always makes sure he knows what he’s doing when it is time. He always keeps in contact with you to make sure that he knows what you want. I am able to see my kid without any restrictions from a mother that tried to keep me away. Thor made sure I got what I wanted especially when the courts ignored some of my requests. He makes it easier for men to be able to get through the courts especially since Florida is a mom state.

Modification of parental plan
Mr.Thor Hartwig was able to put our family back together. Reunite a father with his children. He negotiated a great deal with a totally rigid, unyielding ex wife. He modified the visitation on a parental plan that she put into effect by default during a time of crisis. Having a diagnosis of bi-polar he looked past the stigma/label society places on you. He was able to look at the evidence, the situation and draw reasonable logical conclusions based on my individual situation. He was an incredible help for a situation that had gone on for way to long. He was professional, knowledgeable, confident & realistic about what was obtainable. Returned calls quickly, addressed my concerns and has reasonable rates. I highly recommend him. He made all the difference. Thank You Joe

Modification of parental plan
Thank you for your help in a situation that had gone on for way to long. You were professional, knowledgable, told me from the beginning that what I wanted was totally obtainable, and your willingness to fight for my rights made all the difference. The modification of the parental plan you were able to negotiate with an inflexible, unreasonable ex wife exceeded my expectations (I had prepared to go to litigation, whew!). Thank you for protecting my fathers rights, keeping my medical records private and giving my children and I a future to look forward to. I will forever be grateful. I highly recommend you to anyone going through this struggle.

Clear, concise & ultra-professional divorce representation.
How refreshing in today’s legal world to have someone who is as knowledgeable, experienced and engaging as Thor. My X-wife filed for divorce in Florida but I live out of state, not only did Thor successfully dispute the multiple errors in their divorce filing but he also guided me on all options and strategies every step of the way, while working to change the MSA protecting my interests. In addition he arranged for me not to have to travel to Tampa for the court hearing, instead getting me a very fast final divorce completed on our 1st court date without me even having to be there! I would highly recommend Thor Hartwig for any and all divorce issues in Florida, as the personal attention and dedication he gives is just amazing, and the results in my case were fantastic! Wish there was a 6th star option to show service above excellent...

Hired the night before;granted 50/50 custody
I hired Thor THE NIGHT BEFORE my custody hearing. We talked for a bit and he told me he would take my case and for a reasonable amount. Thor did an outstanding job in such little time. After not seeing my three kids for about 8 months, due to their mom keeping them away, I was granted 50/50 custody and I will see my kids tomorrow for the first time in 8 months! I'm very grateful and thankful to have found Thor when I did and I would definitely recommend him to any father fighting for his children!

Great Divorce Guidance for Someone Out-of-State
My ex-wife and I were separated, her living in Tampa, FL and myself living in Minnesota, when I hired Thor to guide me through the divorce process. My ex-wife requested the divorce and wanted us to file for the separation jointly. However, I was unsure of what was the best option for myself and my interests. I reached out to and hired Thor to guide me through the divorce. Thor walked me through my options for getting a divorce in Florida while living out of state, and helped me find the option that best protected me and my interests. Allowing me to live in Minnesota, yet get divorced in Florida without having to travel to/from during the process. My ex-wife had accumulated credit card debt and purchased a home in Florida that I wanted no interest/liability in. Thor wrote up a MSA for us that specifically protected me and my interests from my ex-wife's debt and home. Thor was a monumental asset throughout the whole process. He broke the divorce process into easy, manageable steps that I could follow with confidence. He made himself available to me through email, phone calls, and texts. Thor answered my numerous and often repetitive questions, consistently providing strong advice. Thor went above and beyond for me. Thor made the divorce process approachable and less daunting. I would highly recommend his services to anyone.

Best choice for Service Members, Period.
I was fortunate to find Thor to represent me for my divorce. After talking with a few other attorneys and explaining my unique situation, Thor was the clear choice for me to work with. I’m an Active Duty Service Member that was dealing with an extremely difficult, spiteful, and frustrating divorce with my ex-spouse that lived out of state. Thor was also an AD Service Member and still serves in the Guard today. He went through a similar experience as my own and truly knows and understands not only the civil side of divorce litigation but also the UCMJ, how divorce can affect military careers, and the mental toll it takes to work through unique situations like these. He always shot straight, was honest, timely, rational, and the calm voice of reason. I couldn’t have asked for anything more. I’m very greatful for the work and effort he put in for me. I highly suggest Thor to represent you for divorce/dissolution.

Very thankful!
I went through a separation about 8 months ago. I was connected with Thor and through the very emotional and stressful process, Thor was nothing but helpful, very informative. I had a lot of questions and asked probably more than I should have because I was concerned about my child. Thor did great work and got me the results I was looking for in every aspect. I was able to prevent my daughters mother from taking her and moving her out of the school district where I'm located and this was a huge deal for me. I also have 0 dollars in child support to pay and get my daughter 50% of the time! This really couldn't have worked out any better. Thor is a great guy and I have a ton of respect for him being a soldier in our armed forces as well. I can't say enough good things about him. I would recommend him to anyone going through a divorce or paternity case.!!! Outstanding job

Super Fantastic Experience!!!
What you often don't find in a family law attorney is one that understands what you're feeling, understands what you're trying to accomplish, and does it in a the most effective manner. If you're going through a divorce or any type of family legal dispute Thor is you're guy. I'd highly recommend you give him a call.

All men should go to thor
Thor is the best divorce/child custody attorney for men. I was afraid of not getting equal custody and split child support for my five year old son, as well as afraid of being forced to pay palimony/alimony. This kept me in a miserable relationship for years. Other attorneys told me to give it up, I had no rights. Then I had a consultation with Thor. He's been there in his own relationship with a child and been thru all the threats. He knew how to protect me and get my rights enforced. He was more than supportive and very accessible every step of the way. I have my son exactly 50% of the time now and he is healthy, happy, and thriving in my care. Men with children: don't give up until you've talked to Thor. Thank you Thor!

Fair and honest attorney
My ex was Mr. Hartwig's client during our split and he was just as much an asset to me as he was my ex. Thor's ultimate goal was to develop a time sharing schedule for our son that was fair to both parties and especially to our child. Thor was available to answer any questions I had with honesty and sincerity and encouraged a peaceful relationship between my ex and myself. Thor took what was the most difficult time of my entire life and made it so much easier which gave me the peace of mind that is almost impossible to acheive in these situations. Thank you Mr. Hartwig!
