What to Ask at the Initial Consultation with Your Florida Divorce Attorney

You have an appointment with the best divorce lawyer in Florida. How do you make the most of your limited time in the consultation?

Hopefully, you have prepared a written list of assets, debts, income and expenses for both you and your spouse. After you provide the expert divorce lawyer the history of your marriage and hear the explanation of the law and the process, you should have a chance to ask questions.

How much will this cost? Are you recognized as an expert divorce lawyer by the Florida Bar by having earned Board Certification in Marital and Family Law? What can I be doing to improve my child custody chances? How will the marital and non-marital assets and debts be divided? How much child support will be paid? How much alimony and for how long? Will one of us have to pay the other's attorney's fees?

We have all written notes to ourselves so we don't forget to ask a question at our next doctor's visit. Do the same with you divorce and child custody lawyer.

Bottom Line: Some advance preparation can help you get the most out of the meeting with your Florida divorce lawyer.

An uncontested divorce means that the spouses agree on the division of marital property, alimony, and child custody, support, and visitation. The spouses sign a Marital Settlement Agreement and go to court for a quick hearing to finalize the divorce. The cost of an uncontested Florida divorce is usually minimal. It generally takes 30 days after the parties sign the Marital Settlement Agreement for the court to finalize the uncontested divorce. This time will vary depending on how busy the courthouse is, but an uncontested divorce with both spouse's participation is typically the fastest.
