Uncontested divorce in Florida

Having decided to end their marriage in FL, couples are free to choose between two options:

  • Contested divorce. When the spouses are completely unable to come to terms regarding such aspects as property division, alimony, or child custody and support, they have to solve these issues though lawyers, and, often, through the judge in court. A contested divorce is impossible without a lawyer as both spouses need a legal professional not only to try and reach certain agreement, but also to represent their interests during a hearing. Therefore, this kind of marriage dissolution is extremely expensive and long-term with some cases spanning for years.
  • Uncontested dissolution. This option works for those couples who are in a full agreement regarding divorce-related aspects. Such kind of dissolution is much cheaper than a contested one because if you have no disputes with your ex, you won’t need to hire a lawyer if you choose not to. Besides, this process won’t take months after you file and serve the spouse – all you need to do is wait for a specific amount of time (in Florida, it’s only 20 days) until your divorce is finalized.

The problem is that even if you are going to get an uncontested divorce, you still have to collect and fill out dozens of forms. If you have children or need to divide property, the number of forms will only increase. Can you be sure that you fill all these papers correctly and that the court won’t reject them? With Online Divorcer, you can!

Getting a divorce in Florida with a child

Child custody and support are among the issues that have to be solved by the divorcing spouses before the dissolution can be finalized by a judge.

  • Before the divorce can be initiated, spouses have to develop a parenting plan and time-sharing agreement to be ready to present it during the hearing.
  • As in any other state, there are two types of custody in Florida: legal and physical. As a rule, divorced spouses are granted joint legal custody over their child unless requested otherwise by the parents. If the spouses are unable to come to an agreement, a judge reaches the decision on a premise of child’s best interests.
  • Before making a decision regarding custody, a judge takes into account such factors as physical and mental health of parents, cultural and religious aspect, home environment, any evidence of domestic or alcohol/drug abuse, the age and sex of the child, etc.
  • In Florida, child support is determined, taking into account the combined income of parents as well as the time that each spouse spends with the child. In the state, both parents are obliged to pay support no matter what type of custody they possess.
  • Child support is paid until the child graduates from high school or turns 18.
