In my Tampa, FL divorce or family law case, what is a petition?

The petition is the document that actually starts the process of your divorce or family law matter. In Florida, it is called a petition for dissolution of marriage in a divorce or in a family law matter it would be, for example, a petition to determine paternity. We like to use the legal terms because it makes it a little bit easier on the parties. Divorce is one of those terms that people just don’t like to hear so we call it a petition for dissolution of marriage.  When it and any other petition is filed, that begins the process with the court and you obtain a case number where all of your pleadings (paperwork) in the case will be filed.  Call our expert divorce attorneys today at 813-672-1900 or email us for a free consultation to discuss the family law or divorce process.
