Divorce

Florida is a “no-fault” divorce state.

Divorce does not have to be expensive… Sacks & Sacks offers payment plans as well as some of the most affordable legal fees in Jacksonville. Please review our Divorce FAQs for a brief explanation of divorce, alimony and child custody. Plus we offer a free, one-hour initial consultation to answer your divorce questions.

BEWARE OF NON-ATTORNEY DOCUMENT PREPARATION SERVICES. These form-filling services offer unbelievably cheap “document preparation” claiming you can “do-it-yourself.” These operations are specifically prevented from giving you ANY legal advice. In addition, you have nowhere to turn if things go wrong. When you put the attorneys of Sacks & Sacks on your side, you get the benefit of an experienced legal team looking out for your best interests. Please contact us today.

Floridians do not need to show misconduct, adultery or some other unsavory act to petition the court for a divorce. The court must only find:

  1. The person filing has been a Florida resident for at least 6 months prior to filing for divorce.
  2. The parties have tried to save their marriage (i.e. marriage counseling).
  3. There are irreconcilable differences between the parties.
  4. That the marriage is irretrievably broken.

With nearly half of all marriages now ending in divorce, there is no reason to continue living in pain and unhappiness. Our society has recognized that living apart is often better for a family than being forced to stay together in misery.
