The Florida Divorce Process

Divorce is not an easy matter. The dissolution of a marriage can take a lot of time and energy. With the help of one of our divorce lawyers at The Day Law Office, we can guide you through the process. There are several steps you will have to take to get a divorce in Florida.

Filing a petition stating the marriage is “irretrievably broken” is the very first step that you will need to take to begin the divorce process. You, the petitioner, will need to file a petition for dissolution with additional documents, including financial affidavits, distribution proposals and child custody plans (when children are involved). These documents must be filed in the county where you last lived or where you currently live. Our job will be to help you gather these documents and ensure the petition is filed correctly.

Your spouse will have twenty days to file a counter-petition or answer. If there is a counter-petition, it will specify any disputes or additional matters that have to be addressed. At that point, you may ask for temporary orders regarding child custody and support, as well as possession of the family home, use of a specific vehicle and more.

Around this time, our divorce attorneys will begin the discovery process. This step is crucial to ascertain any information that could change the outcome of a divorce. This information can include:

  • Hidden assets
  • Debt statements
  • Bank statements
  • Proof of income
  • Tax returns
  • Life insurance policies
  • Health insurance policies

A financial affidavit – that was filed 45 days after the petition was served – and statements from each spouse made under oath can help uncover certain financial details that are crucial to the divorce.

If there are any complications during the process, divorce mediation may be required by law to negotiate the terms of the dissolution. This process can resolve disputes, arrange a parenting plan, discuss asset division and resolve any other areas of conflict or disagreement. If any issues are still unresolved, a judge may make a final decision during a trial.

Once all of this is done, the divorce can be finalized. At The Day Law Office, we understand how difficult this process can seem. Our experienced divorce attorneys can be by your side every step of the way to help you obtain a satisfying end result.
