real answers to your questions
If you and your spouse agree on the dissolution of your marriage, and also agree on how to resolve major issues like alimony, the division of joint property, and timesharing in cases involving young children, you may be able to save time and money on an uncontested divorce.
Ultimately, it’s entirely up to you. That said, we do not recommend proceeding, even in uncontested cases, without an experienced divorce attorney by your side. Florida divorce law is complicated. One mistake can cost you thousands of dollars to correct. And a skilled divorce lawyer can make sure that whatever agreement you and your spouse reach is enforceable so you don’t have to worry about your spouse following through on his or her end.
Every case is unique and the amount of time it takes to complete a divorce depends on how many issues need to be resolved along the way. That said, we are able to finalize most uncontested divorce cases in as little as 30 days.
You do not actually need your spouse to agree to a divorce in Florida. If your marriage is irretrievably broken, and you can prove that at least one spouse has been a Florida resident for the past six months, you are entitled to a divorce whether your spouse wants one or not.
