How Does the Divorce Process Work in Florida?
Divorce processes vary from state to state. It’s important to trust your legal representation to an experienced Florida divorce attorney to ensure they can navigate the complexities of your case and of the legal system during your divorce.
In Stuart and Port St. Lucie Florida, the divorce process begins when one spouse files a Petition for Dissolution of Marriage with the Family Division of the Martin or Saint Lucie County Circuit Court. The other spouse is then served with the paperwork and given time to respond—this paperwork can be particularly confusing and overwhelming. This is why an experienced attorney is so important.
Even if the parties are in agreement about property, debt disbursement, child custody, and child support matters, they should still hire family law attorneys just to make sure the paperwork is filled out and filed correctly. If the parties cannot come to an agreement, then mediation is required. In this case, trust an experienced and caring attorney like Francisco Garcia to represent your legal rights.
Depending on the circumstances and issues related to the divorce, other forms might be necessary:

Is Florida a “No Fault” Divorce State?
Like most states in the United States Florida is a “no fault” divorce state. No fault divorce means neither spouse is required to prove “fault” or marital misconduct on either party. One party must merely show that the marriage is “irretrievably broken” or that the other party has been mentally incapacitated for the past three years.
