“Boy, no, we didn’t, so don’t put that up!!!” “We’re happily married and gone and stay that way,” Hill told X.

Hill, 29, Vaccaro married in Austin, Texas, on November 8, during the Dolphins’ bye week. The two had been engaged since 2021 when Hill proposed at a Fourth of July party.

According to the filing, the spouses have no marital assets or liabilities accumulated during the marriage, likely due to a prenuptial agreement. Hill has 120 days to serve Vaccaro while the proceedings continue.

Request for “legitimate” divorce.

Evan Marks, who has been a divorce attorney in South Florida for four decades, said that in the age of identity theft, it is possible for someone to impersonate an attorney, although that is highly unlikely. However, the way the Hale Petition was written led Marks to believe that this was not the case.

“This is a legitimate and properly filed petition for annulment of the marriage,” Marks, who reviewed the divorce file, told the Herald. “There is nothing to suggest it is anything other than a legitimate solicitation.”

He said that any action taken by the lawyer must be after meeting his client, informing him of his rights, and gathering information about the marriage in preparation for any files. Attorneys and clients also enter a written contract that includes the responsibilities of both parties as well as the amount to be paid to the attorney.

He said that only then can the lawyer submit anything on behalf of his client.

Marks noted that divorce proceedings can be complicated. He said it is not unusual for someone who has filed for divorce to change their mind after a short period of time.

“This type of case is filed with emotions,” he said. “These issues are between people who, at least at some point, loved each other. Relationships involve jealousy and other feelings…”
