The Divorce Process in Florida

The specific divorce process you may face will vary depending on your unique situation, as well as whether you undergo a collaborative divorce, contested divorce or uncontested divorce. In any of these situations, you will need to resolve issues concerning numerous sensitive matters, including:

High asset cases can be even more complex, as they may involve a great deal of assets, property and even businesses that will need to be sorted out.

Following is a basic description of the divorce process in Florida:

  • You or your spouse must be a resident of Florida to file for divorce in this state.
  • The process begins with either spouse filing a Petition for Dissolution of Marriage with their local Circuit Court.
  • The other spouse will then be served with the paperwork and given a chance to respond.
  • If both parties agree upon all issues of custody, support, and property division, the divorce may be resolved without a trial.
  • If parties cannot agree upon some or all of the terms of the divorce, it may be necessary to go to court to resolve the matter, where a judge will rule upon these issues.
