What Is the Florida Divorce Process?

In the state of Florida, the legal term for divorce is "dissolution of marriage." There are many reasons why couples file for divorce; however, there are also numerous ways they can approach their divorce.

  • Residency Requirement – To begin the process, one spouse must have maintained residence requirements in Florida for at least six months.
  • Filing – If residency requirements are met, then a petition for divorce is filed. The other spouse has 20 days to respond, in which case they would either admit to or negate the allegations made. Once the spouse who originally filed the petition receives the answer, they are legally able to file a counter-petition.
  • Discovery – Once the divorce petition is filed, documents regarding finances and other assets are filed with the court.
  • Negotiation/Litigation – Lastly, the details of the dissolution of marriage are ironed out. If a couple cannot come to a mutual agreement in mediation, then a trial is required. Our veteran divorce lawyer in Clearwater, FL can aggressively argue your case to a judge, eloquently and succinctly.
