Representing yourself in a divorce means that you need to study the law, rules of procedure and your local court's administrative orders. These resources are all available online in Florida.
The laws you will need to become familiar with include Chapters 44, 48 and 61 of the Florida Statutes. Chapter 44 covers mediation rules. Chapter 48 covers service of process and the court's jurisdiction. Chapter 61 is the actual divorce law and includes custody and child support.
You will also need to know the rules of procedure. The Florida Family Rules and Procedure (Fla. Fam. L.R.P.) outline the divorce procedure requirements. Some of the family rules refer back to the Florida Civil Rules of Procedure, so you will need access to the civil rules as well. Both the statutes and the procedural rules are contained in our link section.
Finally, you should review the local administrative rules. Each court seems to have some local procedural requirements outlined in the administrative rules. For example, in the 6th Circuit there are special local forms you need to file your case. Many times, the model visitation schedule for your area is contained in an administrative order. So be sure to search your court's website so that you can represent yourself in your Florida divorce.
