“All you need to know about the entire process of divorce”
Even if you have children from the marriage, here’s the information you need to get your divorce done quickly, hassle-free, and with less stress.
When it comes to divorce, most people ask themselves:
What will it take? How long will it take? What will it cost?
If you are considering a divorce, you are probably asking yourself these same questions; and here you will find the answers to those questions.
First, here is one key piece of information you need to have: there are only 2 types of divorces- an uncontested divorce OR a contested (or litigated divorce).
- Uncontested Divorce: Simply put, this is the one where you and your spouse agree on everything that needs to be decided to finalize your divorce in a way that works for you. You avoid spending more money than necessary, spending more time than necessary, and you reduce the emotional stress usually created by the process of divorce.
- Contested or Litigated Divorce: This is the one where you and your spouse don’t agree on one or more things. When this happens, you both will get to spend your time, spend money to get in front of a judge so that whatever you don’t agree on can be decided for you by that judge. You also may get the bonus of the emotional roller coaster (frustration at the process, anxiety over the uncertain outcome, etc.; the emotional stress).

As you can tell, uncontested divorces leave nothing for the judge to decide, because leaving anything to the judge to decide means that you will have to put on evidence. Not having to do this is what makes them the quickest, easiest and most inexpensive divorce—not the fact that you may have children, or property, or debt or whatever.
Even better, you can start your uncontested divorce online right now.
Compare that to the contested divorce, where you have to put on evidence, you have to hire lawyers (unless you know how to put on evidence in court), possibly experts (depending on what you’re fighting each other over).
With a contested divorce you will also get stuck in the clogged legal system waiting to get the divorce done because it is not just a matter of showing up–a lot goes on before you even get to see the judge. You don’t get to start the process online (except maybe set up an appointment with a lawyer) because these contested divorces require collecting a lot of facts and what evidence will be needed as to why you should “win” what you want. Once you start making appointments you also start incurring attorneys fees.
If YOU Can Answer “YES” to the 3 Questions Below, then I Can Help You Get it Done in About 30 Days (sometimes less).
—YOUR answers to these 3 questions will tell you if you qualify for an Uncontested Divorce You Can Start Online
- Are you and your spouse in agreement that the marriage is over?
- Have you and your spouse agreed on what to do with whatever property or debt you have?
- If you have children, do you and your spouse agree on the time-sharing with the children, and that the court will have to set an amount of child support if the Florida Child Support Guidelines indicate that there should be one?
If you can answer YES to these 3 questions, as they apply to your marriage, then you can get an uncontested divorce, usually in 3 weeks from the day we file the divorce papers with the court.
If there is even one “no” to any of the above questions, or if either of you have questions as to what rights you have granted in marriage by our Florida divorce laws, then this process is most probably not for you until those questions are answered. (That doesn’t mean I can’t help you; it just means I will need more information from you to see what can be done to get you to an uncontested divorce).
But if you answered YES to ALL those questions, then here’s how to get started.

This service is Not about…
…You filling out forms online, printing them and filing your divorce on your own, which is what most “divorce online” sites advertise. That’s called filling-up forms online.
That’s not what I mean by an “online divorce.”
We complete the divorce papers you will sign, using the information we will ask you for; and we file the case in court to get the case started.
More importantly, we go to court with you on the day of the divorce final hearing.
You are not left alone to wonder around the Courthouse making long lines at the Self-Help Center, or asking legal questions that they cannot answer.
What I do for you, that the online divorce form outfits and the friendly folks at Self-Help cannot do, is answer all your legal questions via telephone while the divorce is pending, (which I prefer) or via email (which I will do if that’s what you want but it takes longer).
If you are ready to get divorced, you answered “Yes” to the 3 questions above; and what you and your spouse want is to get on with your lives as soon as possible, then you can start this easy process right now. It is the easiest way to get a divorce.
