The Uncontested Divorce Process in Florida How Does it Work?
Once we know the vital information about your case, we can begin drafting your pleadings (initial divorce papers required to be filed with the court when you are ready to start your case), make sure your spouse is willing to accept service, and begin negotiating a reasonable settlement to help your case remain amicable and uncontested. The uncontested divorce process in Florida can be labyrinthine without a divorce attorney guiding the way. We often provide reasonable solutions to foster compromise on important issues. When spouses are divorcing, it often occurs that compromise is tougher than usual. This is another reason hiring an uncontested divorce attorney in Osceola County Florida, or anywhere in Central Florida can make a real difference in the outcome of your divorce case.
When spouses have minor children, the uncontested divorce process in Florida must include a parenting plan, child support calculations, and the parties generally must provide a financial affidavit. While discovery may be limited in comparison with the general mandatory disclosures, most Florida family law courts require both parties to provide a financial affidavit. Child support is based on the parties’ incomes and expenses for the children. Divorce is a potentially long process.
The Florida uncontested divorce process does not need to take months or years and it does not have to be one filled with bickering. Uncontested divorces can offer a lot of relief to spouses that are preparing for financial changes in their post-marital life.
