Frequently Asked Questions
What should my first step be after deciding to seek a divorce?
After making the difficult decision to seek a divorce, the first step you should take is making sure you meet the legal requirements to file for divorce in your state. In the state of Florida, either you or your spouse must have been a resident for at least six months or stationed in the state as an armed forces member. Once that condition has been met, you or your spouse must believe that your marriage has been irretrievably broken. After this point, you can file a petition for the dissolution of marriage.
How is child custody determined?
In the state of Florida, child custody is called timesharing. Timesharing is determined either by an agreement between the parents or by a judge if the parents cannot reach an agreement. The judge considers many factors when it comes to timesharing arrangements all of which are detailed in our Florida Statutes and are centered around what the judge believes is in the best interest of the child.
What kind of divorce is best for me and my spouse if we are in total agreement?
If you and your spouse are in full agreement, you can opt for an uncontested divorce. An uncontested divorce can be standard or simplified. A standard uncontested divorce would be a good option for you if you and your spouse agree on how all of your assets and debts will be split up. A simplified uncontested divorce is only available for spouses who do not have children. Keep in mind that if you choose a simplified divorce, you would be giving up your rights to a trial and an appeal.
