Understanding the Requirements for Divorce Part 5 of 6 | Divorce Attorney Fort Myers/Naples
WAITING PERIOD: Ordinarily the Final Judgment of Dissolution of Marriage may not be entered by the Court until at least twenty (20) days after the date of filing the original Petition for Dissolution of Marriage if the other party was immediately served. Additionally, when there are children under 18, or when either party denies that the marriage is irretrievably broken, the Court may order either or both of you to meet with a counselor, or continue the proceedings for a reasonable length of time not to exceed three (3) months to enable you to try to work out your differences. The court may also take such other actions as it feels is in the best interest of the children or of the parties. At the end of the period, if you or your spouse still want to dissolve the marriage, you must file a request that a final decree be granted.
