TYPES OF DIVORCES:
There are 3 types
of divorces that our office can help you with.
- UNCONTESTED DIVORCE:
If you and your spouse are in agreement with the following issues, both of you will come into our office together and we will help you prepare all of your paperwork, in most cases, while you wait.
You must be in agreement on all of the following issues:
- Agreement. You must both be in agreement that you want the divorce.
- Child custody. Which party will have custody of the minor child?
- Child support. Child support will be calculated in my office using the Florida State guidelines.
- Visitation. Will visitation be liberal and reasonable or scheduled, such as every other weekend and every other holiday for the non-custodial parent?
- Assets. You must be in agreement on how all of your assets are to be split. It does not matter whose name they are in. Assets are usually considered to be the following: Cars, boats, motorcycles, trailers, stocks, bonds, notes, IRA's, 401Ks, or any other retirement plans, real estate, including your marital home.
- Debts. All debts must be decided on, including: All loans, mortgages and credit cards.
The following links are examples of Marital Settlement Agreements and a Parenting Plan that will help you and your spouse come to an agreement. Just remember, if you can not agree on all the matters, mediation will help you fill out a similar document.

- CONTESTED DIVORCE:
If you have tried to get your spouse to agree to all of the above for an uncontested divorce and they will not agree, our office can have a process server serve the documents upon your spouse. Your spouse will be required to respond within 20 days or we will enter a default against them. In most counties, whether your spouse responds or not, mediation will be ordered and you will come to an agreement with a trained mediator. If you can not come to an agreement after mediation, the judge will make all of the decisions using Florida Statutes and previous case law.
- LOST SPOUSE:
If your spouse has disappeared, and you cannot find him/her, we can prepare all the documents and publish an ad in the newspaper to get your divorce. Beware though, this is the most expensive and the most complicated of all divorces. This should be your last resort only if there is no possible chance of finding your spouse.
