Residency Requirements in Florida

Learn How a Jacksonville Divorce Attorney Can Help

In order to be eligible to file for divorce in Florida, there are certain requirements must be met. One of the parties to the marriage must reside in Florida for 6 months before filing their petition for divorce in a Florida court. This petition can be filed in either county which the parties reside if they both reside in Florida.

Many people think that they have to file their divorce in the state in which they were married, but this is inaccurate. At Hutchinson Law, we handle all aspects of divorce cases for our clients. If you are in need of a qualified, experienced Jacksonville divorce lawyer to represent you in a divorce, contact our offices today.

Confident and Knowledgeable Divorce Lawyer in Jacksonville

The emotions which arise during a pending divorce can cause even the most reasonable people to stray from logic and be in a state of extreme turmoil or worse. Having an experienced family law attorney on your side can help to avoid time consuming and costly divorce proceedings. By employing the assistance of a knowledgeable and experienced lawyer, you can have a far higher possibility of a positive outcome, and avoid the common pitfalls of arguing over every detail.

It is not uncommon for the relationship to have deteriorated so badly that one party fights every point, hoping to gain psychological leverage over the opposing party. What may seem like a good idea when you are angry or depressed is probably not the best course of action in the long run. We know the law, and your rights, and we will help you to keep the situation under control and moving forward towards resolution. If possible, we will negotiate an agreement outside of court, saving you time, money and stress.
