Florida Uncontested Divorce
The less your lawyer has to fight over in court, the less money their services will cost you, and both parties need to understand this. As mentioned previously, a Florida uncontested divorce means that the parties agree on all issues such as division of property and debts, and alimony, child support and visitation if applicable. Each party must make full financial disclosure (i.e. divulge their finances) to the other. Among other things, the parties each need to prepare a financial affidavit and file it with the Court. If there are kids involved, a child support guideline worksheet must be prepared, along with a parenting plan which outlines the visitation/timesharing arrangements and other related matters.
For a Florida uncontested divorce, the attorney draws up a Marital Settlement Agreement and the parties go to Court for a very short final hearing. (it is not always necessary for both parties to attend the final Florida uncontested divorce hearing) The cost should be minimal and the case can usually be wrapped up within thirty days of the time that the parties come to an agreement.
