What is the first thing that I should do if I am served with a summons and complaint in Florida?
If you’re served with a petition for a divorce in Florida or a petition to modify any papers that you’re served with, the most important thing is to take a deep breath, relax, read through them and know what they say. You need to take time to make a good decision for your next step because your next step may determine the rest of your life. How you select an attorney and how you respond to a summons or a complaint or a petition is very important. Select an attorney you trust, interview several attorneys until you find one that you feel comfortable with.
