Florida Divorce Process

The process begins when either you or your spouse files a petition for dissolution of marriage. You and/or your spouse must have lived in Florida for at least 6 months before filing for divorce in Florida. This petition informs the court that a spouse desires a divorce and things they are seeking such as child support, time-sharing, parental responsibility, alimony, and property distribution.

After filing the petition, a sheriff or process server will legally serve the other spouse with the petition for dissolution of marriage, whereupon he or she will have 20 calendar days to respond to the dissolution papers and determine a course of action.

Each spouse must provide complete financial disclosure, including pay information, assets and debts, to each other and the court.  While most divorces are solved through amicable negotiation or mediation, some cases require trial for resolution and Alcalde Legal has the experience and knowledge required to make this tough process as stress free as possible.

A marriage is officially dissolved once the court signs a final judgement of dissolution of marriage.
