This updated sixth edition reflects the most recent changes in family law in Florida. It offers an overview of the divorce process, introduces the basic vocabulary and legal concepts associated with divorce, and familarizes you with what to expect if you are planning to divorce in Florida or if you are already divorced and have questions about your rights. Property division and child custody are outlined in separate chapters. Special topics include the mediation process, financial affidavit preparation and tax aspects of divorce. This book also covers the simplified dissolution of marriage procedure, which allows couples who have no children or property disputes to file for divorce without an attorney.
