FLORIDA DIVORCE LAWS AND FORMS PREPARED


Florida Divorce Laws

Florida divorce laws say, many counties permit parties to mail forms into the courthouse for filing. You may never have to appear in court. This practice varies from county to county. Specific, simple instructions regarding completing this process are provided by Pro Se Associates when you finish answering the questions here on line. You may also take the documents to the courthouse in person. Some Florida Courts will not permit mail in filing, and some cases may not be appropriate for mail in filing in any county. You will need to contact the court clerk when you are finished to ask about this.

Residency

In order to file your divorce in a Florida court, you or your spouse must have lived in Florida for the last six months. It is not necessary that both parties live in Florida. One party must live in Florida, the other could live anywhere else in the world.

Forms

Florida forms produced by Pro Se Associates are the Florida Supreme Court approved forms found in the Family Law Rules of Procedure.

Filing Fees

Florida court filing fees are in addition to the cost of using Pro Se Associates. This cost may vary by county. Please check with your local courthouse to determine the exact amount.

How Long Will It Take?

The use of the Pro Se Associates service generally takes between 30 minutes and two hours or more depending on the complexity of your case. Florida divorce law does not have a mandatory waiting period after the filing of your case, but a judge may choose to continue (delay) your case for up to three months to allow the parties a chance to reconcile. Usually, such a delay would not occur in an uncontested (agreed) case.

You may qualify for a simplified dissolution of marriage.

SIMPLIFIED DISSOLUTION OF MARRIAGE

Certain Florida couples are eligible to dissolve their marriage by way of a simplified procedure. These dissolutions are "do-it-yourself" and were designed so the services of an attorney may not be necessary. Husband and wife are responsible, however, for filing all necessary documents correctly, and husband and wife are required to appear before a judge together when the final dissolution is granted. If you desire the services of an attorney for this dissolution process, it can usually be completed relatively inexpensively.

The simplified dissolution of marriage process is designed for couples with no dependent children and no disputed property. Therefore, not everyone can qualify. A husband and wife can use the simplified dissolution of marriage only if: (a) they both agree to the use of this form of dissolution proceeding; (b) they have no minor (under 18) or dependent children; (c) have no adopted children under the age of 18; (d) the wife is not pregnant; (e) at least one of the parties has lived in Florida for the past six months; (f) the parties have agreed on the division of all of their property (assets)and obligations (debts); and (g) both parties agree that the marriage is irretrievably broken and want to end their marriage because of serious permanent differences. Couples wanting to use the simplified process must meet all these conditions. If not, they must use the regular dissolution of marriage process.

There are substantial differences between a simplified and a regular dissolution of marriage. In a regular dissolution, each spouse has the right to examine and cross-examine the other as a witness, and to obtain documents concerning the other's income, expenses, assets and liabilities before having a trial or settlement of the case. With a simplified dissolution, financial information may be requested, but it is not required to be given. In a simplified dissolution there is no trial and no appeal. Also, with a simplified dissolution neither the husband nor the wife can receive support from the other.
