What Our Clients are Saying:

After working with the Affordable Divorce Center, I can say it was one very satisfying experience. It’s difficult enough to be in a situation of having to hire an attorney when going through a divorce and wonder if it’s a good match or not. My experience from the very beginning was nothing but exceptional. Everyone is helpful and compassionate. Phone calls and emails are answered quickly and very precise.

Adriana Gonzalez

I truly did not think I could afford an attorney. Originally, I filed all of my divorce documents myself. My “simple” divorce quickly became complicated . I wish I had done everything through this firm to begin with. They were fantastic and empathized with my situation. They worked with me at every step. I’m so grateful.

Jenny Demura

Best Place to go for any type of issues you need taken care of. They are on top of things and take care of most of the work so you don’t need to worry about things going wrong. Best of the best in my opinion, would recommend to anyone who needs great lawyers to help them out.

Gioser Cruz

These guys are the best. They kept me informed every step of the way. The most important thing for me was my children. They were able to get an agreement that focused on that and insured I got the support I needed.

Donna Mydland

I highly recommend the Affordable Divorce Center. Shawn and Wendy handled my case professionally, with care, and in the end I received the results that I wanted. My questions were always answered and I felt comfortable working with them throughout this process. Divorce isn’t easy, but they made it easier, both financially and emotionally. Thank you!

Paternity Service in Florida “FAQ”

The only difference between the two programs is cost and whether or not we complete the forms for you.  With Document Assembly there is only one appointment with a Paralegal. You complete all of the documents on your own with our advice and step-by-step instructions.  With Document Preparation there are two appointments – the first is to complete an Intake Form with all the information we need to complete your forms, and a second appointment with a paralegal to review, sign and notarize your documents.  In both cases, you have everything you need to file your case and attend your final hearing.

Yes, the initial Court filing fee of $409, a summons fee of $10 and service of process fee either by the sheriff’s office of $35 or a private process server of $50

If your case is contested and mediation is required by the Court, the fee, depending on your combined income would be either $60 or $120.  You also have the option to use a private mediator at an hourly rate set by the mediator.

There are mandatory filing fees by the Court, however, we will provide you with an application to determine whether or not the filing fees may be waived.

Document Assistance packages only apply to divorce cases that have not been filed yet. Document Assistance packages cannot be used to modify or enforce child support or alimony.

With Document Assistance, we will meet with you and give you the forms and instructions in one day.  With Document Preparation, we will meet with you to discuss your case and you will have your completed documents within 7-10 days.  It is up to you to go to the Courthouse and file your documents.

For Document Preparation, we will need yours and your spouse’s personal information including date of birth and social security number, dates of marriage and separation.  If there are minor children, we will need their social security number, date and place of birth and their addresses for the last 5 years.

While it certainly helps, no, you do not need to be in agreement to get your case started with these programs.  

No. Please note that your case may be delayed while attempts are made to find your spouse and the Court may require you to provide detailed and documented proof that you have made a diligent search to find him/her and/or publish notice in a local newspaper.

You will have to contact the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s office or a private process server to serve your spouse.  We will advise you on where to find a list of them.

If you find that the forms are too complicated to complete yourself, we will gladly upgrade you to the Document Preparation program for the difference in price within the first 24 hours.  If it’s longer than 24 hours, a paralegal will assist you at the paralegal’s hourly rate.

Document Assistance is not appropriate in the following instances:

a)  The case has already been filed

b)  There is domestic violence

c)  The other spouse has retained an Attorney

d)  There is an active Protection Order involving one of the parties

e) If there are contestable issues. For instance, one party is requesting alimony, one or more of your children has special needs, or one party is requesting sole custody or an uneven share of the marital property.

In these circumstances it is advised to contact us for low cost representation
