Florida Divorce Lawyer Russell Knight Explains What Happens After a Spouse is Served with Divorce Papers

Florida divorce lawyer Russell Knight (https://divorceattorneynaplesfl.com/i-was-served-with-divorce-papers-in-naples-collier-county-florida/) releases a new article explaining what happens after a spouse is served with divorce papers. The lawyer mentions that getting served with divorce papers can be very dramatic even. Often, it happens with a professional server visiting the house of a spouse who is about to be handed the divorce papers. Being served with divorce papers is not the best feeling in the world.

“After service, you’re now under the power of the judge’s standing order. The Collier County family law judges (as of the date of this writing) both use a standing order. There is one standing order for litigants with children and one standing order for litigants without children. So, if your spouse has filed for divorce in Collier County, Florida, you have to make arrangements for the children’s schedule as soon as possible,” the Florida divorce lawyer says.

The lawyer mentions that child support is encouraged to be paid but not ordered by the standing order until the court makes a temporary order. The spouse who is looking after the children is not allowed to move while the divorce case is pending.

Attorney Russell Knight adds that Collier County residents who are divorcing whether they have children or not must follow a series of rules to keep everything in the same status quo as of the date of filing until further order of the court. The standing order also elaborates that retirement accounts and insurance policies must remain in place.

In the article, the lawyer says, “Avoiding service is almost never advisable. Avoiding service just delays the inevitable. Without service and a written answer on your behalf, your spouse can use the Collier County court system while you cannot. This may mean frozen bank accounts or even ex-parte orders regarding custody of children.”

The Florida divorce lawyer stresses that it is important to consult an experienced attorney when dealing with family law matters. A skilled attorney might be able to help clients understand their rights and responsibilities during the divorce or separation process.
