Our Family Law Services

At Emerson Law, P.A., our goal is always to resolve divorce and family law cases as amicably and affordably as possible. We work closely with you to understand the circumstances, goals, and needs you bring to the table. 

We seek to resolve cases through negotiation methods outside of court whenever possible. These methods can be less stressful, less expensive, and less time-consuming than litigation. Furthermore, they keep essential decisions in your hands, often resulting in a more favorable outcome for both parties.

However, we understand that not all cases can be resolved through negotiation methods. We are prepared to aggressively litigate on your behalf when needed. Our skilled legal team can prepare and represent you in court with a strategy to protect your rights and best interests.

We handle all Florida family law matters, including: 

  • Adoption: We provide legal assistance and guidance for individuals and families in the adoption process, ensuring that all legal requirements are met.
  • Annulment: Our team can help you navigate the complex and often emotional process of obtaining an annulment, a legal declaration that a marriage was never valid.
  • Domestic Violence & Abuse: We offer legal representation to domestic violence and abuse victims in seeking protective orders and advocating for their rights in court.
  • Child Custody: Our attorneys can work with you to establish child custody arrangements that serve the best interests of your children while protecting your parental rights.
  • Child Support: We can assist you in securing child support payments that are fair and reasonable based on your circumstances.
  • Divorce: Our firm provides comprehensive legal representation for individuals going through the divorce process, including property division, spousal support, and child-related issues.
  • Fathers’ Rights: We advocate for your rights as a father to give you a voice in legal matters related to child custody, child support, and other family law issues.
  • Legal Separation: Our attorneys can help you obtain legal separation, allowing you and your spouse to live separately while retaining certain legal marital rights and protections.
  • Parenting Plans: We can assist in developing parenting plans that address custody, visitation, and other key issues related to co-parenting after divorce or separation.
  • Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements: We provide legal advice and guidance for couples seeking to create prenuptial or postnuptial agreements, which can help protect assets and financial interests in the event of divorce.

  • "He held my hand through my entire custody process."

    Mr. Emerson for lack of a better phrase held my hand through my entire custody process. I was very busy with other personal matters during the custody procedures, but my case never missed a beat due to Mr. Emersons diligence. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing an attorney in any of his areas of expertise. Mr. Emersons rates were also fantastic when I compared a few different lawyers.

    There’s no question Cody is a talented and dedicated lawyer. I hold him in high regard and will recommend him to anyone going through a divorce.
