The exact amount of money you could save using the services of SplytUp depends on how much information you provide (and agree upon, with your spouse) regarding the terms and conditions of your divorce. At SplytUp we focus on simplified and uncontested divorces. This allows us to provide streamlined affordable legal services, with the caveat that our clients and their spouse play an active role in coming to terms on how to divide their marital assets and liabilities, agree on support and decide on child related matters, along with other issues specific to each divorce.

Once you and your partner have agreed on the issues of your divorce, filed the necessary documents, and paid the filing fee the simplified or uncontested divorce on average takes about eight weeks or less. However, the exact length of time from filing to final divorce depends on your county’s Clerk of the Court and the Court’s schedule.

Each Florida court and county sets its own filing fees. Most county clerk offices accept payment by debit or credit card, checks, money orders, or cash. Please keep in mind that we can file your divorce documents and even represent you through the final hearing to obtain your divorce at additional charges. If you cannot afford the filing fee you may ask for an Application for Determination of Civil Indigent Status by clicking on this link:

If you and your soon to be ex reach a stumbling point, we can offer advice on how to work through your differences. According to the CDC, most divorces settle. In fact latest statistics show a 90% settlement rate. 

At SplytUp we understand that it takes 2 to tango and that emotions can get in the way. We provide our clients with access to resources to get you and your spouse on the same page; from mediators, to parent coordinators, life coaches and others. These resources can will provide the helpful assistance you may need to work through differences. Our life coaching services also provide insight on ways to calmly communicate with your spouse to promote a settlement mindset.

Remember, the more you and your spouse can agree on the terms of your divorce, the less expensive and time-consuming your divorce will be. However, in some situations, the parties’ differences may require court intervention. While the lawyers at SplytUp do not litigate, we can refer you to lawyers that best suit your needs.

As a law firm we represent only one side of the divorce. This way we provide legal advice to our clients based on what is in that client’s best interest. We also bring to our clients’ attention issues that they may not have considered but should be addressed. Representing one side assures that we are focused on our client’s best interests. Your spouse does not need an attorney to move forward, but they are of course legally entitled to hire one.

Child support and alimony may be modified after a final judgment is issued but only under certain circumstances and after consideration of the legal factors that must be shown. Each case needs to be looked at, case by case, by a qualified family law attorney that can provide sound legal advice.

Each court has its own specific requirements and procedures as to what is required at the final hearing of divorce. Most courts require at least one side attendance at a final hearing. In other matters, such as with a Simplified Divorce, the courts may require both parties’ attendance. Many courts conduct these hearings by video conferencing. Other courts may waive the final hearing and instead have the parties submit an additional affidavit. Our team would assist in providing specific information to your jurisdiction.
