    Divorce in Jacksonville, FL

     Divorce in Florida is called a "dissolution of marriage." To qualify for a divorce, one of the parties must prove that the marriage is "irretrievably broken." This simply means that the relationship cannot be fixed. Florida divorces are "no fault" and uncontested divorces may be deemed irretrievably broken by the statements of the divorcing parties. If a divorce is contested, however, proof the relationship is broken will need to be given. This is where having an experienced divorce attorney becomes important.

    Protect Your Assets During Divorce

    Divorce can be a complex and emotionally challenging process, especially when it comes to dividing assets and property. At Zisser Family Law, our experienced Jacksonville divorce attorneys are here to help you navigate this aspect of your divorce and ensure that your assets are protected.

    Here are some key points to consider when it comes to protecting your assets during divorce:

    1. Understanding Florida's laws: Florida follows the principle of equitable distribution, which means that marital assets are divided fairly but not necessarily equally. Our knowledgeable attorneys can guide you through the specific laws and regulations related to asset division in Jacksonville.
    2. Identifying marital and separate property: It's important to distinguish between marital property (assets acquired during the marriage) and separate property (assets acquired before the marriage or through inheritance or gift). We can help you determine what qualifies as marital property and what is considered separate.
    3. Valuing assets: Properly valuing assets is crucial for a fair division. Our team can assist in assessing the value of various assets, including real estate, investments, business interests, and retirement accounts.
    4. Negotiating settlements: We are skilled negotiators who will work tirelessly to protect your interests during settlement discussions. Our goal is to achieve a fair and favorable outcome that preserves your financial well-being.
    5. Enlisting experts: In complex cases, we may collaborate with financial experts, appraisers, and forensic accountants to ensure a thorough evaluation of your assets and to strengthen your case.
