Divorce Process Supportive Counsel You Can Rely On

The Divorce Process in Panama City Beach

Experienced & Skilled Legal Counsel

If you find yourself asking how to begin the divorce process, you’re already there. The biggest step you can take in your marriage is realizing you no longer want to be in it, which can be an incomprehensible realization for people to come to. The divorce process may seem scary and overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be--especially with the right attorneys on your side, such as ours at The Virga Law Firm, P.A. Despite the potentially volatile challenges to come, getting ahead of the divorce process has never been easier.

How Can I Start the Florida Divorce Process?

Once you decide you don’t want to stay in your marriage, it is essential you file a petition for dissolution of marriage. Kickstarting the process begins with filing the petition with the family courts, though it doesn’t matter which spouse files.

Next, you cannot waste any time enlisting a lawyer with the experience and practice to deliver you the results you deserve. The spouse who does not file will be served these papers by a county sheriff or appointment law enforcement official.

What if Children are Involved?

If you are concerned the situation will turn contentious, or simply out of foresight and protection, you can seek a temporary court order for child custody, visitation, alimony, or child support.

How Will My Divorce be Finalized?

Divorces are finalized before a judge. This is the most important part of your divorce process as it essentially sets in stone the agreement which will determine the course of your family life, especially if you are expecting support or hoping to resolve custody matters.
