Florida family law distinguishes between two types of divorce: uncontested and contested.
An uncontested divorce is one where the parties reach a written agreement on all issues – child support, child custody, alimony and division of assets, debts and costs. This agreement is filed with the court and, with the court’s approval, a final judgment is signed by the judge. Uncontested divorces can be resolved with a flat fee.
A contested divorce occurs when the parties cannot come to an agreement regarding all issues, including child support, child custody, alimony, division of assets and debts, and costs and fees. The parties do have the opportunity to attempt to resolve some – if not all – of these issues through negotiation and medication. Contested divorces normally require more preparation and litigation costs. They also may last several months and may become financially and emotionally grueling.
Whether yours is a contested or uncontested divorce, your family and your financial future are at stake. To protect your rights, you must know Florida divorce laws and how to apply them to your case.
