In my Florida divorce case, what are the alternatives to going to court?
You can always settle out of court. You can either settle through both attorneys, your attorney and your spouse’s attorney, through mediation. There are different venues for you to settle outside of court. However, even after settlement, there is a 10 minute hearing, which is called an uncontested divorce hearing, which one of you should attend, usually the petitioner. And just appear in court for a 10 minute hearing, and the judge will render your divorce at that point.
