Understanding the Divorce Process in Florida

Date Posted: March 31, 2021 3:39 am


The divorce process in Florida is known as Dissolution of Marriage.  When deciding to file for divorce, you should carefully consider all of your options and the implications for you, your family, and your finances.  There are several different process options for you to choose from.  Florida is a "no-fault" divorce state.  This allows either party to file for a divorce without reason other than the parties do not care to be married anymore.

Parents are parents before, during, and after divorce., Both parents need to plan how the children will be taken care of, ideally together.  A parenting plan details each parent's involvement with their children and includes matters such as important decisions like daycare and health care. Carolann can help youdesign a parenting plan that works best for your family.

Child support

Florida law says that both parents have a duty to financially support their children. Carolann  will help you understand how child support is calculated in Florida and will help you understand what children’s expenses are included in the child support calculation.

Child Matters

Among the biggest challenges during divorce is making decisions that affect the children. It is stressful when parents fight over where the children are going to live and how decisions regarding the children will be made. Fighting these matters in court makes it worse and leaves personal decisions in the hands of a stranger judge. Carolann believes that parents are the experts when it comes to their children. She encourages parents to choose process options that leave the decisions to them, not to a judge.
