By Your Side Throughout Each Stage Of The Divorce Process
The decision to end a marriage is rarely an easy one. Filing a petition is just the first step in what can be a lengthy and contentious battle. At Michael E. Golub, P.A., we understand the emotional and financial toll a divorce can take on your entire family.
Our primary goal is to provide the resources you need to make sound decisions and help you move on from a broad range of family law matters.
Helping You Understand The Divorce Process
In Florida, divorce begins with the filing of a petition for dissolution. A petition for dissolution may be filed in Florida for:
- An irretrievable breakdown of the marriage
- Mental incapacity of one party for at least three years prior to filing the petition for dissolution
If the parties can agree on issues such as property division, child support, alimony and custody arrangements, they can enter into a written agreement that the court must accept. These uncontested divorces may become final in a matter of weeks.
Contested divorces can take several months to resolve. In the event that the parties cannot agree on the terms of a divorce, the court will make the final judgment.
