Post-Divorce Modifications

We understand the importance of rebuilding a stable family dynamic post-divorce, particularly when young children are involved. Whether your co-parenting relationship is cooperative or contentious, our family law attorney will attempt to reduce the frustration of your child custody case by encouraging practical solutions that protect the best interests of your children. We can also help arrange a time-sharing custody schedule that benefits all parties.


Completing an adoption creates a new legal relationship between the adoptive parent or parents and the child. Filing for adoption is a serious legal process that formally bestows the rights and responsibilities of a biological parent onto an adoptive parent. You can trust our experienced legal counsel to guide you through the complicated process of adoption in Florida. Autumn Beck Blackledge is ready to help you take the next steps in growing your family; she will ensure your adoption is handled in full accordance with the requirements of the law.

Prenuptial Agreements

Prior to marriage, a couple should consider writing a prenuptial agreement to outline how they would divide their assets in the event of a divorce. The purpose of a prenuptial agreement is not strictly to plan for a divorce, but to ensure you and your partner both understand how the situation would be handled should it arise in the future. It gives you the opportunity to create a fair agreement together that supports the best interests of both parties. Signing a prenuptial agreement also allows parents with children from prior marriages to safeguard their children’s inheritance.

Postnuptial Agreements

Also known as a postmarital agreement, a postnuptial agreement can be drafted by any married couple seeking to define their rights and obligations in the future event of a death or divorce. Our Pensacola family lawyer can assist you in writing and filing a detailed postnuptial agreement designed to protect your rights and interests. Additionally, if you are considering a divorce in the near future, we can assist you in writing a separation agreement.


Our family law attorney can offer the resources and experience necessary to advise and represent you in a Florida paternity case. The outcome of a paternity test directly influences whether or not the mother may seek child support from the alleged father and whether or not the father can seek custody. Successfully establishing paternity allows the father to participate in the child’s life and holds him to the legal responsibilities of being a parent.

“I hired Mrs. Blackledge to guide me out of a domestic nightmare and she not only prevailed, but provided me with sage counsel throughout the ordeal. I strongly recommend her…she is the very best family law attorney in Pensacola and perhaps the state.”
