Few events in life are as stressful as a divorce.  With emotions running high, it is important to have a clear understanding of your rights and obligations during divorce, and the various documents you will file and other steps you will need to take throughout the process.  While no amount of quick tip advice can replace a qualified Florida Divorce Attorney, here are a few considerations to start you down your rode to resolution.

Types of Divorce in Florida

When it comes to dissolving a marriage, Florida is considered a “no-fault” state.  This means that in Florida a party may file for divorce (the petitioner) against their spouse (the respondent) for any reason.  The only requirement is that the petitioner must claim that the marriage is irretrievably broken.  Either the petitioner or their legal representative will file what is known as a petition for dissolution of marriage.  This will be followed up by various other documents and filings depending on whether support has been requested and the complexity of any division of assets.  The last document that will be filed at the final hearing in the divorce process will be the Final Judgement of Dissolution of Marriage.  These two documents comprise the essential legal beginning and end to any Florida divorce proceeding.
