A Divorce can be one of life’s most stressful events. For that reason, the right Divorce Lawyer is essential to this difficult process.
In Florida, a divorce is referred to as a Dissolution of Marriage. Florida recognizes two grounds for divorce:
- The marriage is irretrievably broken (cannot be fixed) or
- One of the parties to the marriage has been declared mentally incapacitated for at least 3 years prior to filing the action for divorce.
Proof of residence
Florida law requires proof of Florida residence. The court will require proof that one of the parties to the divorce has resided in Florida for at least 6 months prior to filing.
A divorce is rarely ever pleasant. As a result, properly weigh all options and consider the consequences on your family and finances before you proceed with a divorce. Orlando Divorce Lawyer Natalie D. Hall, P.A. has extensive experience in seeing you through the divorce process.
The length of time needed to complete a divorce varies. Several factors affect how the long the process will take. One important factor is the willingness of the parties to come to an agreement on the issues. Some common issues that arise during a divorce are those involving the children. Children issues can range from time-sharing, decision making, child support, etc.
It is always a good idea to identify the areas which may be in conflict. Also, gather proof and evidence supporting your position before filing for divorce. Those with minor children should think about how each parent will share time with them. Specifically, where the children will be during week days, weekends, holidays and school breaks.
What are the assets
It is also good practice to become familiar with the existence and current value of all property. For example, financial accounts, retirement plans and in general, all assets of the marriage.
