Choose Your Divorce Option
If you have any remaining chance to save your marriage, we encourage you to exit this website and make every effort. If you are confident you have done so and are solid in your decision to proceed we will be happy to help. There are three different divorce options. Some more general information about divorce.
Option 1: Document Preparation Service
If money is a concern and you don’t mind doing some of the legwork, this option might be the choice for you. We will be drafting all your documents the same as the other options but we will not be representing you as your attorney. You will be responsible for seeing that the documents get properly filed, and a hearing set for the final judgment to be signed. You will most likely be required to attend a final hearing if you use this option. We will be providing you with completely drafted documents that are ready to file in the County of your choosing. You will receive everything you need and nothing you don’t. We give you an instruction sheet advising you step by step what to do in the process to assist you in moving through the system. START HERE
Option 2: No Children, Debts or Property
If you have no joint real or personal property or joint debts to divide and you have no minor children together then this is the option for you. This is by far the easiest, least expensive and fastest option. START HERE
Option 3: No Children With Debts or Property
Option 4: With Children
If your divorce involves any children born during the marriage that are still under the age of 18 you will select this option.
Fill out your information
Filling out all information as accurately as possible will assist in processing your case and keep you costs down. Then you submit your information to us and make your payment.
The filing fee can be paid online or by check payable to Florida Simple Divorce in the amount of $421.00. If you decide to pay online, the fee for filing will be $432. This is because of the fees the credit card company charges us to accept online payments. There are no hidden costs or fees. The only time there would be additional fees is if both parties decide they want changes made to the documents.
We draft your documents and email them back to you for you to review, print and sign. You will then have your spouse review and sign. After the documents are signed you will return them to us and we will see that they are filed and finalized. Please note that we do not file the action until we have received all the documents back and signed by both parties. We do that because people sometimes change their mind and decide to stay together or they change their mind and decide there are issues they want to contest. In either case we save you the filing fee of $408 by making sure everyone is in agreement before we proceed.
Review and Sign
A couple can be divorced in approximately (30) thirty days, assuming all parties properly sign/notarize the documents drafted for them and promptly return them to our office. The court is required to wait at least (20) twenty days after the documents are filed with the Clerk of Court to proceed. Typically, the Judge will sign off on the Final Judgment within 2 or 3 days of receiving it.
Our goal is to have your documents drafted and sent to you within 48 hours of receiving your request and payment. We will do everything we can to complete this process as quickly and painlessly as possible for our clients to help ease or alleviate any additional stress.
By using our service, parties do not have to attend a hearing or make an appearance. After all your paperwork is signed/notarized and sent to us, our office takes care of the rest until the divorce is finalized.
