Contested vs. Uncontested Divorces
Florida courts categorize cases as contested or uncontested divorces. Here are the differences:
Contested divorce in Florida:
You and your spouse disagree on at least one major issue, such as alimony, child custody, or property division. These cases may require court intervention and can be expensive and time-consuming.
Uncontested divorce in Florida:
You and your spouse agree on all key issues, making the process faster and less costly. Florida divorce mediation services can help you and your spouse agree on important issues, improving your chances for an uncontested divorce.
Child Custody and Support in Florida
Florida courts prioritize the best interests of your child when determining custody arrangements and child support. The object of custody proceedings is to produce a parenting plan—a comprehensive arrangement that provides a clear framework for parenting responsibilities. The plan will outline important decisions regarding health care, education, upbringing, and other issues affecting the child’s life.
Key considerations in custody may include:
Parents have a legal duty to provide for their children financially whether or not they live with them. Obligations for child support are based upon a state-approved schedule that considers the economic status of both parents, including income from employment, businesses, spousal support obligations, pensions, retirement plans, disability benefits, property ownership, and more.
Alimony in Florida
Alimony, also known as maintenance or support, typically provides financial support to disadvantaged spouses during or after divorce until they can support themselves. Florida now has four types of alimony: durational, temporary, rehabilitative, and bridge-the-gap. Permanent alimony was eliminated in 2023, though older arrangements are still effective.
Considerations in alimony proceedings may include the following:

What are the Tips for Those Considering Divorce?
Before you begin the process of filing for divorce, it is important to prepare yourself:
Gathering Relevant Documentation
Evidence is the backbone of any legal case, and divorces are no exception. You’ll want to collect financial records, including bank statements, tax returns, and investment portfolios. This evidence will be crucial when explaining your views on a fair division of debts and assets to the court.
You’ll also want to gather evidence to help support your preferred parenting plan. Gather evidence supporting your parental responsibilities. Such documentation could include school records, medical histories, and other supporting documents. If there is a history of abuse or neglect, carefully document these instances, as they could prove key in court.
Emphasis on Communication and the Emotional Toll
A divorce is an emotional journey that requires clear communication and emotional resilience. If possible, maintain open lines of communication with your spouse to facilitate negotiations. Consider involving a mediator to resolve issues amicably and reach a faster divorce settlement.
Finally, do not underestimate the emotional toll a divorce can take on your mental health. Seek emotional support from family, friends, or professionals to help you through this challenging time.
