There are two basic types of divorce cases in Florida: Contested and Uncontested. A contested divorce occurs when the husband and wife cannot come to an agreement on one or more issues related to the dissolution of their marriage. Typically, a divorce will be handled by the local county family court in your area. When parties cannot come to an agreement, even with the aid of their respective counsels, most will take their issues to family court for the Judge to decide. Contested divorces typically involve difficult issues related to child custody, child support, division of assets and property, allocation of debts, and alimony
In an uncontested divorce, both parties agree upon issues including child custody, spousal support, asset division and any other issues related to the divorce. This agreement is put into writing, often prior to filing the case. A Judge reviews the suggested terms and in most cases signs a Decree of Divorce. Uncontested divorces can save parties money and involve less conflict. You can utilize an attorney to process your divorce; however some couples attempt to process uncontested divorces on the cheap without a divorce lawyer.
