Orlando Family Law Attorney Frequently Asked Questions
In a no-fault divorce, however, both parties agree that the marriage ending is not the fault of either party; it is simply no longer salvageable. Misconduct on the part of either spouse isn't relevant to the divorce itself, though it could possibly play a role in the decision to award alimony or child custody.
Every county has a slightly different procedure on filing requirement. But one thing in common between various counties is the filing fee, currently $408 as of this writing, and the summons issuance fee, currently $10 as of this writing. You will also incur a cost for the process server. Some counties immediately schedule a case management conference upon filing your new Petition for Dissolution of Marriage. Other counties wait for you to schedule necessary events. The case management conference (CMC) is primarily a way for a judge to see the current “status” of the case and to push it along if possible. Major decisions are normally never made at the CMC. But if your case is uncontested, you have all your paperwork filed, and the judge is in agreement, you may be able to finalize your case at the CMC.
Mediation is a mandatory proceeding in family law cases. The majority of family law cases do settle at mediation or shortly thereafter. The Court will not set your matter for final hearing (trial) unless you have been to mediation.
If the parties cannot agree to the changes, then the party desiring the change can file a petition for modification, explaining the changes sought and the reasoning behind the request. The parties will again have to attend mediation before a final hearing is held on the modification request, but if the parties cannot agree the Court will conduct a final hearing to receive testimony and evidence, and then issue a ruling.

Ophelia and her firm handled my divorce and several post-dissolution issues after the fact. She is always honest and direct. I love that about her and the firm since they don’t sugar coat things like many other attorneys do. She is very realistic as to outcomes of my issues, is reasonable with her fees and is always looking out for my best interest. This is an attorney that cares. And her staff is amazing and always there to help. I completely recommend Ophelia Bernal-Mora.!
