Florida divorce Petition forms
A husband or wife seeking to file for divorce in Florida must file a Petition for Dissolution of marriage. There are several different Florida divorce forms, depending on whether you have children, property or both.
Florida financial affidavits
In most Florida divorce cases, both parties need to fill out and file a financial affidavit. There are two different florida divorce financial affidavit forms. The short form is used if the person’s income is less than $50,000 per year or the long form if the person’s income is more than $50,000 per year.
Florida Answer to divorce Petition-
This form should be used when you have been served with a petition for dissolution of marriage and you do not wish to contest it or appear at a hearing. If you file this form, you are admitting all of the allegations in the petition, saying that you do not need to be notified of or appear at the final hearing, and that you would like a copy of the final judgment mailed to you.
If you contest (do not agree) with anything in the divorce petition, you need to fill out a different answer and should not use this Florida Answer and Waiver form.
Florida Parenting Plan forms-
A Parenting Plan is required in all Florida divorce and paternity cases involving time-sharing and decision making with minor child(ren), even when both parents agree on timesharing. The Parenting Plan must be developed and agreed to by the parents and approved by the court. If the parties cannot agree to a Parenting Plan or if the parents agreed to a plan that is not approved by the court, a Parenting Plan will be established by the court with or without the use of parenting plan recommendations.
Florida child custody forms
In any Florida divorce involving minor children, a Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (UCCJEA) Affidavit must be filled out and filed with the Court. A Florida child support guidelines worksheet may also be required.
