What Documents Do I Need To File For Divorce in Florida?

Listen as Florida attorney Linda Gruszynski explains what documents you need to file for divorce in Florida.

If you live in Florida and you are thinking about divorce, there are multiple documents that need to be filed, even if your divorce is quite simple. These include the following:

1. A Petition for Dissolution of Marriage. This document lays out your claims.

2. Notice of Related Cases. This lets the court know if there are other cases open in other states, courts or counties.

3. Notice of Social Security Number. It contains your SSN and your birthday.

4. Notice of Confidential Information. This seals the pleading so it is not open to general public.

5. Family Law Financial Affidavit. Resembles a tax return + budget form with your gross income, deductions and monthly payments.

These are the documents that you can expect to need to file for your divorce case in Florida. All documents need to be signed and notarized. You should do everything you can to make sure everything is accurate and truthful. Watch the video to learn more.

Testimonials

I was referred to Draper Law by my father in-law after being hit from behind in an auto accident. I didn't realize, at the time, what an important decision I was making by hiring a personal injury attorney to represent me. Charles Draper took the time to explain the process and what I could expect. His professional team was there for me every step of the way through a long, and often complicated, legal experience. I just want to express my sincerest gratitude for all the efforts that were taken by Charlie and his team on my behalf in obtaining a settlement on my case.
