Do I need a lawyer for a non-contested divorce in Florida?

Uncontested divorces are the most affordable way to obtain a divorce in Florida. An uncontested divorce can result from negotiations and settlement or from a settlement through the mediation or Collaborative Family Law process. Nevertheless, Florida uncontested divorces still require the filing of the proper divorce records including the Petition for Dissolution, Answer, Waivers, a Marriage Agreement Contract outlining the spouses’ agreement and the Judgment of Divorce, which are complicated documents that you may want a Miami divorce lawyer to review. Thereafter, a hearing will be held to finalize the divorce and related issues wherein the Family Court Judge will require proof that the Marital Settlement Agreement is fair and that the mandatory jurisdictional requirements have been met, things that a Miami divorce attorney will be able to help a client with.
