Breaking up is hard to do. Sometimes, one person finds out that another has been unfaithful, or another person may just be out of love, and a Florida divorce can come as a surprise or without very much warning.

Clients coming in for an initial consultation about getting divorced will ask in many instances the following questions:
Does it matter that I file the Petition for Dissolution of Marriage first?
Will my spouse get the upper hand if he or she files first?
