Florida Women's Law Group

Are you looking for a lawyer to represent you in your Divorce Law in Jacksonville Beach, FL case? Florida Women’s Law Group is the only family and divorce law in Jacksonville Beach, FL firm for women. Our goal is to empower you to take control of your life.

Divorce Litigation (with a Lawyer):

  • The litigation process is typically resolved within 9-12 months, with an experienced child custody attorney. An experienced lawyer will provide a strategy and timeline for each case, so you can anticipate the length.
  • The fees you pay with an attorney will be higher than mediation. A child custody attorney will guide you through the process, provide advice on how to proceed, risks and benefits, settlement offers, and the likelihood of success. Working with an experienced attorney can potentially make up for the fee difference due to a better settlement for you.
  • You make the decisions and never give up your decision making to your child custody attorney. Your lawyer is your guide, providing legal advice and the strategy to achieve your goals. The judge is the decision-maker and in most cases necessary when your spouse is unreasonable.
  • Communication between parties is never discouraged and can be helpful to resolve many issues. However, in cases of mental, physical, and emotional abuse, or highly contentious divorces, communication can be manipulative and detrimental and may not be advisable because it is not in the client’s best interest.
  • Experienced child custody lawyers have experience with the emotional and psychological effects of divorce their client's experience.
  • In the event a husband and wife cannot agree, a trial may be necessary. In our experience, this is preferable to settling for only what the other side will agree to, which is usually not consistent with the law.
  • Hostility and bitterness is caused by the deteriorated relationship and uncontrolled emotions, it is not caused by the legal process. Fractured relationships cannot always be repaired, but individual and family counseling can help.
  • Children are often affected by divorce. Seeking counseling is the best way to minimize negative effects on children.
  • Divorce should never be a win-lose situation. Having goals and a strategy is essential to achieving a positive outcome.
  • Reason – whatever your unique reasons for pursuing a divorce, let our child custody attorneys help.

Divorce Law in Jacksonville Beach, FL Mission Statement

A divorce and family law firm that will always be, by women, for women. We represent our clients through the entire divorce process, empowering women to control their lives, families, and finances, ensuring that they have a happier, healthier life.

Why You Should Choose Mediation With An Experienced Divorce Attorney:

  • Using an experienced child custody attorney will give you a strategy, case plan with goals, and a time frame.
  • Mediation without a child custody attorney may be less money out of pocket; however, trying to fix a poorly written or preliminary agreement will typically cost far more than using an experienced attorney from the start.
  • Mediation without a child custody attorney does not allow you to control the divorce process any more than with an attorney, except that you are not kept apprised of the process, so you cannot contribute effectively. Further, if your spouse is controlling and has intimidated you to attend mediation without an attorney, this is often so they can control the process to their advantage.
  • Mediators do not have more specialized training in emotional intelligence or psychology and, in many cases, less than an experienced divorce attorney.
  • A mediator cannot advise you of your rights under Florida law. They are neutral and cannot advocate for you or inform you that you are entering into an inadequate settlement.
  • There is nothing special about mediation without a child custody attorney who promotes a better relationship for divorcing spouses and their children.
  • It is cannot be a win-win situation when you are not equipped with understanding your rights or with an experienced child custody attorney by your side.

Heather & her team go out of their way to be helpful, understanding, supportive and compassionate I didn’t rust walk away with a divorce, I walked away with new Mends that really want to help women I have and will continue to refer women to Heathers practice.

Posted by Meghan F. Hartford

Heather and I are both members of a group of lawyers committed to exceptional client service. I run a family law firm In Connecticut, but we often have women who have divorce or family law issues In Florida. When we do, it Is always a pleasure to be able to refer them to the team at the Florida Women’s Law Group. They are a very special team — and not just because they are the only Florida divorce and family law firm that dedicates their practice to serving women. When they say they revolutionize the way women are represented throughout the entire divorce process, they are right. I have seen them empower women to take control of their lives, families, and finances.

Heather is a very fair attorney. I felt she helped me to keep my costs down by not filing motion after motion. She listened to how I wanted things to turn out and that is what she did. I thought it was an ugly case but Heather’s professional relationship with the opposing attorney helped to manage the ugliness. She was firm and fair.
