This post is being written to conclude and recap my series on the handling of uncontested divorces in Melbourne, Florida. I decided to write on this topic due to the fact that many spouses can save significant time and money by going through the simplified process. If the matter is not handled correctly, however, the parties may find themselves going back to Court. The goal of my recent articles has been to provide information which will help people to more fully understand their options. It has also been my goal to provide information which will assist with the selection of a family law attorney. If you require assistance then contact my office today to speak with a lawyer.
I have addressed several topics over my recent articles. Matters which I addressed include:
- Whether Florida spouses can file for an uncontested divorce
- How the uncontested divorce process works
- The benefits of a simplified divorce
- Why one should retain an attorney to handle their case
There are multiple reasons why I chose to address these topics. First, there are several criteria which must be met in order to begin the streamlined process. These include meeting our state’s residency requirements and, importantly, ensuring that you and your spouse are in agreement on all issues. If there is any disagreement between the parties then they must go through the contested process instead. Second, while the steps in such a case may seem straightforward, it is important to remember that if all the requirements are not met then the case may be delayed or, worse, may require a re-filing. Third, the benefits of the quick process include reduced stress, the saving of time and money, and a reduction in post-divorce tension. Finally, while retaining an attorney is not required, it can help to ensure that you do not have to subsequently go back to Court.
One point I mentioned in each of these articles is that retaining legal counsel can help to ensure that your settlement agreement properly addresses all of the issues. This can help to ensure that you do not have to re-litigate the matter and that you can move on with your life.
