Hello! Welcome to our blog. This is a place where we can share our stories and learn from each other. Please be supportive as we all handle this journey called life differently. Some of us grow up and some of us decide to stay as "Toys are Us Kids" - we are all welcomed here!
So let's get into it, shall we?
You are here because you are considering filing for divorce, have filed for divorce or you are bored and found this blog by chance. If you are here because you are interested in learning about filing for a gay divorce go to our main page and knock yourself out.
So the good about filing for a gay divorce - It's possible thanks to the change in federal laws mandating every state in the United States to allow same sex marriages. Just a few months ago a gay divorce was not possible in the State of Florida simply because it same sex marriages were not legal. Another good news is that Florida has what is called a no-court divorce, which means your divorce can be done quickly (in less than 45 days) and without ever stepping into a courthouse.
The bad about filing for a gay divorce - Well, it's a divorce so #1 it will cost money, #2 it means a significant relationship in your life just ended, #3 you are now part of the same divorce statistic affecting every household in the State of Florida.
The ugly about filing for a gay divorce - Hopefully this is not you, but the ugly divorce is when both parties are so fed up and filled with drama that the divorce becomes a pain inflicting tool and not a freeing process. When there is enough drama in your divorce that makes #realhousewifesofatlanta look tame, then we know that it's time to let a judge make the decisions and think about having a gay divorce by summons.
In the State of Florida, a gay divorce by summons is a divorce where your spouse gets served by a sheriff or private process server and has 20 calendar days to respond in writing. Then you may be sent to mediation or trial. Depending on the complexity of the issues at stake this type of divorce may take 60 days to 1 year.
The thing to remember always is that Florida is a no-fault state which means everything earned and purchased in the marriage will be split 50%, unless you both agree to have a different arrangement, this is how the judge will rule.
Hopefully your situation is not in the ugly category. If it is rest assured that we can help you go through this stage of your life quickly, professionally and with tact.
