Divorcing Orlando parents have a responsibility to make the Court aware if there are minor children from their relationship. The initial divorce pleadings must state the existence of any minor children as well as make the Court aware if the wife is pregnant. The pleadings must also provide the appropriate information which allows the Court to establish jurisdiction over the children.
Although much of the language regarding “custody” and parental responsibility has changed, there is still important information which must be included as part of the initial Dissolution of Marriage pleadings. Preparing these pleadings can be confusing. But the importance of stating a party’s position to the Court cannot be understated. To ensure that you have fulfilled your requirements and protected your future rights, you would be wise to engage the assistance of a qualified Orlando divorce attorney.
