There are a number of things that happen after the filing of the divorce petition for dissolution of marriage.

Neither party can permanently remove the children from the state of Florida. Also, within 45 days of service mandatory disclosure of financial documents has to be exchanged. Your family law attorney will explain to you the other requirements that are time sensitive after the divorce action is filed.
