How Quickly Can I Get A Florida Divorce?

Many people are in a hurry to get a divorce in Florida. The reasons vary. Some people are anxious to marry someone else. Some want to stop sharing their large incomes with their lower income spouses. Some just want out of the relationship. For whatever the reason, many are hopeful of getting the speediest divorce possible.

In Florida, as in all states, divorces can last for many months and sometimes even years. There are times, however, when each person in the marriage wishes to get on with things and an agreement on all issues is not a long, drawn out process. When that occurs, it is possible to obtain a quick Florida divorce.

Once you and your spouse have decided that you want to get things over with and move on with your lives, you can contact your expert Tampa divorce attorney and find out just how quickly the process can be completed.

Florida law allows that, once you have reached an agreement on all issues, you can get a dissolution of marriage in as few as 20 days from the filing of the petition for dissolution of marriage. You can even get it done more quickly if you can show the court that an injustice would occur by waiting the required 20 days.

Bottom Line: If you are anxious to finalize your Florida divorce, you can accomplish this in as few as 20 days from the filing the petition for dissolution of marriage once you and your spouse have resolved all of your differences regarding parenting issues, distribution of property, spousal support and reimbursement of attorney's fees.

Alimony in Florida can be requested when one spouse needs financial assistance. In order to qualify for alimony, the requesting spouse must prove need and that the paying spouse is financially able to make the payments. Alimony is typically a set amount which is paid monthly for a set period of time or until certain circumstances occur, such as remarriage. Alimony is not as common as one may think. The Florida divorce court can award temporary alimony until the final divorce hearing is held. Then, at the final divorce hearing, the court can order permanent alimony if it is requested and necessary.
