Frequently Asked Family Law Questions

  • Can I get a legal separation instead of divorce? - The state of Florida does not recognize legal separation. This state instead has a "limited divorce." Limited divorces are mostly like a divorce, with the difference that the parties cannot remarry. If you are seeking a limited divorce, you will need to meet all of the residency requirements and grounds for an absolute divorce. Limited divorce cases still involve property division, child custody, and support matters.
  • How long will a divorce take? - Most divorce cases take between 3 to 6 months. If the case is uncontested and terms of the divorce are agreed to in advance, the divorce can be accomplished within a few weeks. If your divorce is contested, it could take longer than a year.
  • Who will receive alimony? - The receiving and giving party of alimony depends on several factors, such as the need of one spouse to be supported and the ability of another to pay. You will want to discuss your specific case with our firm.
  • What if my spouse was unfaithful to me? - Adultery may be considered when it comes to certain factors of the divorce, but not others. If marital misconduct was a factor in your case, this will likely play into the giving and receiving of alimony awards. This, however, is only one of many factors that will be considered.
  • Do I need an attorney to handle my divorce? - Although in some cases you can represent yourself, this is not recommended. Make sure that you consult an attorney in regard to your goals and for assistance protecting your rights. At Taylor & WaldropAttorneys, we offer initial case evaluations to help you get started.
