The proper legal term for a divorce in Florida is a “dissolution of marriage.” The legal process begins when one person files a petition, or lawsuit, seeking a divorce/dissolution and settlement on issues such as property, child custody, child support, and spousal support. Then the other person will have 20 days to contact a lawyer and/or file a response or answer and possibly a counter-petition, i.e. their own petition.
