Filing for Divorce in Florida but can't Locate Your Spouse?

Are you trying to file for divorce in Florida, but do not know where your spouse is? This presents a problem if you and your spouse own property together, or if there are monetary rights to be distributed between spouses. Florida law requires the spouse filing for divorce to have the other spouse served with the initial divorce pleadings; in order to have the other spouse served, you must know his or her whereabouts, or be able to show a Judge that you have made a reasonable effort to locate him.

Reaching an Agreement in Child Support with DOR

Reaching an agreement in a DOR Child Support case is no easy task. When a person, typically, but not always a mother, obtains assistance from the State of Florida in obtaining or enforcing child support she actually assigns her right of child support to the Florida Department of Revenue (DOR). Sometimes she does this voluntarily, meaning she contacts the State in hopes of getting them to assist her, and sometimes she gets their assistance whether she wants it or not. This happens when she attempts to get food stamps or cash assistance from the State of Florida, who, in return, says we will help but only if you allow us to go after the Father of the child for child support on your behalf. Sometimes the mother is aware that she has assigned her rights of child support and sometimes she is unaware of this fact.
