How Do I File for a Divorce?

File for a Divorce

The Dissolution of Marriage packets are Florida Supreme Court Approved Family Law Forms. There are four separate packets from which to choose based on your family circumstances.

The forms for these actions can be obtained at the Clerk’s Office and the Clerk’s Office can assist you in choosing which form best suits your purposes.

In circumstances where there are no children and there is no dispute as to how to split assets, there is a process termed “simplified” divorce. Otherwise, a standard procedure for dissolution must be followed. 

Cost for Filing

Dissolution of Marriage:  $397.50
Petition for Modification of Dissolution:  $50 

Judgment fee: $10.50

Timeframe for Divorce to Be Finalized
A hearing to finalize the divorce will be scheduled at the earliest possible date.  There is a mandatory 30-day waiting period before a hearing can be held depending on the court’s calendar.  You and your spouse must both appear before the court on the scheduled hearing date.

What is and who qualifies for alimony?
Upon separation or divorce, in some cases a judge may order one party to pay spousal support (alimony or separate maintenance) to his or her spouse. If awarded, the court will determine the type, duration and amount of alimony.
