I’m Heather Quick, owner of Florida Women’s Law Group and I’m here today to talk to you about what to do when your husband serves you with divorce papers.  These are the top three things you must do as soon as you are served.

What you need to do:

  1. Stay calm. I know this hard; you are mad and upset or part of you might be relieved and happy.  There will be a lot of emotions and if you act on them the wrong way it can really hurt you later.  Try and stay calm and take a deep breath and get your emotions under control.  Do not post anything on social media.  Do not pick up the phone and leave a nasty voicemail to your husband.  Keep it quiet within the family, do not call everyone in the family and talk about it.
  2. Check your bank balances and credit cards. If he has financially cut you off then that means that the divorce is going to go in a very different direction from the beginning.  You will have more issues to deal with having no access to funds.  You need to know where you stand.
  3. Call our office. At Florida Women’s Law Group we represent women just like you.  Once you are served there our time limits that have to be observed.  Do not ignore these papers or put your head in the sand.  Call us and let us guide you through this because this is what we do.  It is why we are here, to help you from where you are now in this confusion and emotional state and get you to a better future.
