Knowing When to File for Divorce in Florida

Knowing when to expedite and when to hold off filing for divorce can make the difference between gaining the upper hand and losing the edge. Ultimately, the decision as to when to file for divorce depends on the situation, the length of the marriage, the circumstances surrounding the children, and the desired outcome.

For example, the difference between a 16 and 17-year marriage can be the deciding factor of whether alimony is permanent or not. Similar conflicts of interest can be noted throughout Florida law deeming it essential to speak with an experienced Florida divorce attorney to discuss case-specific details and decide whether filing first would be advantageous.

Keeping Divorce Private in Tampa Bay

Privacy can and should be of the utmost importance for divorcing parties around Tampa, Florida. Unfortunately, traditional divorce litigation requires parties to work through divorce issues publicly, in the public record, and perhaps in front of a judge. These proceedings leave items such as financial affidavits in the public records, exposing intimate details about personal lives and livelihoods for all to see.

If privacy is your concern, our attorneys at Rechel & Associates, P.A., can guide you through the process of collaborative divorce, which allows for the dissolution of marriages to occur without exposing private matters. During successful collaborative divorce cases, contested court appearances before a judge are not necessary and a financial affidavit may not need to be filed. This means that matters are resolved privately, without introducing evidence or witnesses to the court and the “court” of public opinion.

Taking the First Steps to Divorce

Fundamentally, the first step to the dissolution of marriage in Florida is preparation, which should occur before the filing process even begins.
