Uncontested No Appearance Divorce in Florida

     Divorce in Florida is called "dissolution of marriage". An uncontested divorce is granted when the parties agree on all issues and the parties do not have to appear in court at all under the circumstances I describe on this site.

 

     My name is Michael Wheeker and I am an attorney licensed to practice in the State of Florida. Getting divorced doesn't have to be difficult and expensive. I will represent you in a Florida Circuit Court and prepare the pleadings and documents you need in order to request and be granted an uncontested no appearance divorce. My office has helped hundreds of Florida residents save time and money (and frustration) while navigating the procedures and requirements when filing this type of legal cause of action. 

     Beware of using non lawyer internet services that sell forms or assist you in filling them out. Non lawyers do not have the legal education, skill sets and training licensed attorneys possess and for your protection are not allowed to give you legal advice, but sometimes they do. Don't take chances, I offer great pricing for this service and I will be there to answer your questions and guide you through the process. 

 

     Call 561-389-2022 now and ask for Attorney Michael Wheeker.
