Divorce Document Preparation
We know that a divorce is stressful for all involved. That stress combined with the concentration to detail which is required to complete important legal documents -- alone, for the first time -- can be overwhelming. Not everyone can comfortably afford an attorney. A friendly and compassionate legal document preparer who listens, and is familiar with the forms and procedure may be all that you need.
Each Situation is Unique
Some of the biggest decisions arise when there are children. Florida has several different processes for dissolution of marriage, depending on the couple's specific circumstances. If there are no children, and no property to divide, the couple may be able to use Florida's simplified process. However, for some, the "simplified" process is more complicated than using a regular petition for dissolution of marriage. If a divorcing couple has children in common, issues about child support and child visitation need to be settled.

Divorce - No Children, No Property
If a divorcing couple doesn't have children together, and has no property to divide, a couple may have a choice about which forms/ or processes to use. The Petition for Simplified Dissolution of Marriage or the regular Petition for Dissolution of Marriage. The main difference between the two processes is that in the simplified dissolution process, both parties must appear at the final hearing. If one or the other is unable or unwilling to appear at the final hearing, then a simplified dissolution is the wrong choice. We offer document preparation services for the regular petition for dissolution of marriage with no property and no children. We do not offer document preparation for the Simplified Dissolution of Marriage process.
Florida is what is known as an "equitable distribution" state. Equitable does not mean equal, it means fair. Most property acquired during a marriage is considered "marital property" and, needs to be equitably divided at the time of a divorce.
Some couples want or need a Marital Settlement Agreement to settle and memorialize how their property is to be divided. A marital settlement agreement is usually signed by both parties, and once the divorce is final it becomes part of the final order.
If a divorcing couple has amicably divided their property prior to filing for divorce, then they may not need a Marital Settlement Agreement at all.
