Financial Affidavit, Marital Settlement Agreement, Motion & Order for Child Pickup, or Child Support Guidelines Worksheet
These forms can be confusing - some of our customers prepare them themselves -- others ask for our help. Almost all Florida divorces; and many other family law actions require a Family Law Financial Affidavit. A Marital Settlement Agreement is required when a divorcing couple has property that they have not yet divided. Sometimes a couple prefers to use a Marital Settlement Agreement when they have divided their property but would like the terms of the property distribution incorporated into their Final Judgment of Dissolution of Marriage. A Motion & Order for Child Pickup may be required in certain circumstances. And if a child is in eminent danger an emergency motion may be required. A Child Support Guidelines Worksheet is required to correctly calculate Florida child support. Both parties financial information must be available to properly complete this worksheet. You may complete any of these yourself. Simply request the blank form, and we will send it to you at no charge. Or we can prepare these documents for you.
