A Family Attorney. Helping good people through difficult times.
Welcome to the online home of Seth R. Nelson, P.A., a family law firm serving the Tampa, Florida region. If you’re here, you’re probably going through a difficult time. We’re here to help.
If this is the first step of your legal journey, feel free to look around our site. We have a helpful list of clients’ frequently asked questions, as well as a simple walkthrough of the divorce process.
We specialize in family and divorce law, and can legally serve any Florida resident. Some of our specific services are:
For divorces: We offer full legal consultation and representation, as well as mediation services for parties who feel there won’t be any major legal battles.
For kids, but not marriage: We’ll work with you to develop a parenting plan, schedule for where the child(ren) spend their time, and a child-support payment arrangement.
For changes to the divorce’s terms: In the event of a major lifestyle change (loss of job, new financial burdens), a party may request that the alimony, child support, or child(ren)’s timesharing schedule be altered. We can help you resolve this dispute.
For domestic violence: Cases that involve domestic violence are often the most emotionally charged, and can have more severe consequences than regular cases. We’ll help you navigate this delicate time, from filing an injunction to dealing with allegations of abuse.
It doesn’t always have to be painful to get a divorce. Florida is a “no fault” state, meaning that if both parties agree on the major terms of the divorce, a simple procedure (mediation, followed by a one-step petition) can dissolve a marriage in as little as a few weeks. We frequently work with no-fault cases, and have extensive experience with the mediation process.
