Uncontested Divorce

Navigating The Path To Divorce In Florida: Know Your Choices

Deciding on divorce is a significant step. There are different paths to consider in Florida, primarily choosing between an uncontested or a contested divorce. At Resolute Divorce Law, we recommend the smoother and more efficient option: the uncontested divorce. This choice is economical, fosters cooperation between spouses, and is quicker than a contested divorce.

In-Depth Exploration Of Uncontested Divorce

In an uncontested divorce, both parties agree to resolve their differences amicably before filing. Though legal representation is advisable, some couples prefer a neutral mediator to help navigate complex divorce issues.

Florida Divorce Law Group aims to provide a quick, equitable, and low-stress solution. Typically, divorces without children or assets are resolved in about two weeks, while those involving children take 1 to 2 months.

Crucial Factors In Uncontested Divorces

To successfully pursue an uncontested divorce:

  • Both spouses must be open to working together.
  • Agreement on important divorce aspects like property distribution, child custody, and financial matters is essential.

Benefits Of A Collaborative Divorce Approach

  • Financially Beneficial: Avoid the high costs of contested divorces, such as legal fees, court expenses, and lost income.
  • Time-Saving: An uncontested divorce can be finalized in about three months, subject to court processing times.
  • Cooperative Environment: Collaboration minimizes hostility and emotional stress.
  • Control Over Outcomes: Couples can directly influence their divorce terms instead of relying on a judge's decision.

Initiating The Divorce Procedure

The process begins with:

  1. Preparing necessary documentation, including petitions and settlement agreements, usually within 24 to 48 hours after hiring our firm.
  2. After filing, a brief court hearing via Zoom is typically all that's needed. In most cases, your presence isn't required. Some courthouses may not require a hearing, allowing the judge to sign off on the divorce once the paperwork is completed.
