Overview

The fifth edition of the Florida Divorce Handbook reflects the most recent changes in family law in Florida. It offers an overview of the divorce process, introduces the basic vocabulary and legal concepts associated with divorce, and familiarizes you with what to expect if you are planning to divorce in Florida or if you are already divorced and have questions about your rights. Property division and child custody are outlined in separate chapters. Special topics include the mediation process, financial affidavit preparation, and tax aspects of divorce. This book also covers the simplified dissolution of marriage procedure, which allows couples who have no children or property disputes to file for divorce without an attorney.

You'll learn: the stages of a divorce case, what no-fault is all about, how to find the right lawyer, what to do if you are served with divorce papers, what a settlement is and how it helps you, how custody disputes are decided, the different types of child support, factors in awarding alimony and dividing property, how Final Judgments in divorce cases are enforced, what parts of a Final Judgment can be modified, roles of ex-spouses after divorce, types and functions of nuptial agreements, how to conduct yourself in court.
