In my Tampa Florida divorce case how do I reply to the petition?
It is important to seek legal advice before responding to a petition for divorce, as you need to know your legal rights before responding. However, it is very important that you allow enough time to reply within the deadline given to respond. In Florida, the deadline to respond is 20 days. If you file the answer yourself, you will want to make sure that either you admit or deny all of the allegations that are in the original petition. That answer needs to be filed with both the court and a copy needs to be sent to either your spouse or his or her attorney if they’re represented. See divorce procedure to give you a better idea of the divorce process. We do offer a free consultation to discuss your case with you and the options available.
