I am very pleased with the way this turned out!

"You made the entire legal matter much more bearable! You were there for me when I needed you. This experience was made much easier for me because of your dedication and caring. I am very pleased with the way this turned out!" - C.H.

I truly felt that you cared and that I could trust you…

"I just wanted to say thank you for everything that you've done for me. You were so helpful and available to us throughout this entire process, and took as much stress out of an already stressful situation by spending so much time answering all of our questions. It made a huge difference knowing that you genuinely cared about my case and would do everything that you could to resolve my case. I truly felt that you cared and that I could trust you putting this in your hands. Also, the fact that you worked with me in terms of payments made this path, whereas otherwise I may not have been home right now. I cannot thank you enough." - J.M.

Divorce FAQ

1. What are the residency requirements for divorce in Florida?
One of the spouses in the marriage must reside in Florida for a period of 6 months before their divorce case can be heard. This is to ensure that a Judge will have jurisdiction over the case. You’re allowed to file for divorce in the county that both or either of you reside in.

2. What the differences between uncontested and contested divorces?
In an uncontested divorce, both spouses decide to settle divorce matters outside of a court room. This does not mean that the dissolution of marriage was cordial, as marital assets are still divided, child support and custody arrangements are determined, and alimony is established during these proceedings.

If there are children involved, a couple will often be directed to a court. This divorce court will conduct interviews and make recommendations based on a number of criteria.

During a contested divorce, one or both spouses have a disagreement and must go to divorce court to settle their differences. It’s strongly advised that anyone in this position seek the counsel of an attorney. The paperwork, procedures, and court hearings associated with a dissolution of marriage are very complicated and require a great deal of legal knowledge.

3. How do I initiate a divorce in Tampa?
To begin the process, you or your attorney must file the proper dissolution papers after it’s sure that you meet the residency requirements. After the other spouse has been successfully served, there will be a pre-trial discovery phase, which could include gathering evidence, requesting or providing the proper documentation, or locating viable witnesses, among other things.

If it’s determined that your spouse will not fully cooperate, the case is sent to divorce court to be handled by a judge.

4. I can’t afford an attorney because my spouse was the only one with income. What can I do?
If you can’t afford an attorney and you don’t qualify for legal aid representation, there are options. In some cases, tampa divorce attorney fees can be rolled into your divorce settlement if the court feels that your spouse should pay. This arrangement is contingent on a lot of factors, including whether or not a lawyer will accept this payment arrangement.
