Here is our process for a Divorce with Children in Detail. There are three options for filing for this type of process and it will depend on your own circumstances.

Option 1 – Florida Divorce with Children In Mutual Agreement

No Court Divorce

While we do not endorse this process for a divorce with children, it is available in the State of Florida. This is an option for parents that have been separated for a while and have a healthy co-parenting relationship.

Our process is as follows:

  1. Submit a client intake form to our office divorce-with-children
  2. We will prepare the forms based on one of the options below in 2-3 days and email them to you for review.
  3. We will help you file the signed forms.
  4. We will facilitate preparing any additional forms or documents until the case is final.

For legal advice please contact an attorney.

For a divorce without a court hearing (no-court divorce) the case will be filed in Lee County. It does not matter if you never lived there as long as one of you have lived in the State of Florida for the last 6 months.

This county makes the process very easy and accommodating for anyone filing for divorce.

Once filed the judge reviews the documents and mails the final judgement to you and your ex along with a copy of the parenting plan and marital settlement agreement typically within 30-45 days.

Option 2 – Florida Divorce by Summons

Requires Court Hearing

If your spouse does not want to sign divorce papers then the next option is to get your him/her served divorce documents. We can assist get him served in his residence or his work if you do not know where he lives.

For legal advice please contact an attorney.

Our process is as follows:

  1. Submit a client intake form to our office divorce-with-children
  2. We will prepare the forms based on one of the options below in 24-48 hours and email them to you for review. Once you approve the forms we will print them, place flags on the signature pages and mail them to the petitioner.
  3. We will help you file the signed forms and have the court issue the summons and provide the documents to the sheriff in the county your spouse lives or works. Once your spouse gets served there is a 20 day waiting period to see if a response is provided. Either way the court will most likely attempt to have you both attend a mediation session prior to scheduling a final hearing.
  4. We will facilitate preparing any additional forms or documents until the case is final.
  5. The court will issue a final hearing which you will need to attend.

Option 3 – Florida Divorce with Children by Publication

Requires Court Hearing

If you do not know where your spouse lives or works then this is an option to get divorced. This should be the absolute last option. If your spouse is in Florida let us know and we can do a preliminary search to see if we can find an updated address. If we find one then we will need to get him served (see Option 2 above). 

For legal advice please contact an attorney.

When the whereabouts of our spouse is not known then a divorce by publication will meet the requirements of service by the court.

Our process is as follows:

  1. Submit a client intake form to our office divorce-with-children
  2. We will prepare the forms based on one of the options below in 24-48 hours and email them to you for review.
  3. We will help you file the signed forms and have the court issue the publication. We will also do the search required by the court and submit it to the court.
  4. We will facilitate preparing any additional forms or documents until the case is final.
  5. The court will issue a final hearing which you will need to attend.

With a divorce with children by publication you cannot request child support or establish a parenting plan.
