What is our divorce process?
Our office is known for helping people in Florida get divorced without stepping into the courthouse (if qualified, read below for qualifications) in 3 easy steps:
1 – Submit your information – We will use email and text to contact you and ask any questions prior to submitting payment. Once we have addressed any questions you may have we will send you an invoice by text or email.
2 – Divorce forms –We will email you the complete divorce forms upon payment, typically within 24 hours. You and your spouse (if in mutual agreement) you will need to print and sign the forms in front of a notary and take them to the court to file. If you do not have a printer we will print the forms for you and send them in the mail (minimal printing and shipping fee will apply)
3 – Final Judgement – Will depend if you qualify for a no court hearing divorce or if the process will be a traditional divorce process.
Qualifications for a No Court Hearing Divorce
1 – In Agreement – The divorce should be in mutual agreement. This means both parties are going to sign the divorce documents prior to filing. This applies for simple divorces or with children or joint property and liabilities. This divorce is final usually within 30 – 45 days from the date a case number is obtained. Once the case is filed we mail the final judgement to the court, the judge signs it and sends it in the mail.
2 – Missing Spouse – If the whereabouts of the other party is not known AND there are no minor children or any joint assets or liabilities. This process is split into 3 steps once the case is filed:
Step 1 – Getting publication issued
Step 2 – Filing default paperwork once publication expires
Step 3 – Mailing of final judgement
This divorce is final usually in 2 – 3 months.
A no court hearing process includes receiving the final judgement in the mail directly from the court.
Traditional Divorce Process
A traditional divorce requires a final hearing.
1 – Summons – Other party is not in agreement or is incarcerated. With or without assets or children the court will expect the sheriff to get the other party served the divorce papers. The other party will have 20 calendar days to respond. Once served we will file the default (if the other party did not submit a written response to the court) and request a hearing. Most likely the next step will be to attend a mediation session. The mediator will issue a report to the judge and if all issues have been addressed and an agreement has been reached then the court will schedule a final hearing.
2 – By Publication – If there are minor children or assets but the whereabouts of the other party is not known the court will require to show proof a search ocurred and a publication issued for 30 days announcing the divorce in a local newspaper.
