Thank you for your question. I am happy to assist you.

I am a Florida lawyer with 25 years experience. While I am permitted to provide you with legal information, I am prohibited by and various state bar associations from giving legal advice, representing you or entering into an attorney-client relationship through this open and nonconfidential forum.

You may want to consider filing for divorce yourself. If you do not have children, it is a very simple matter. Would you like the forms?

How hard would it be since I no longer live in florida? And how do I get the forms needed to do this?
Expert:  Ellen replied 5 years ago.

I can give you the forms for Florida. You will need to be to retain counsel in Florida or go to Florida in order to represent yourself. If you prefer, you may file in the state in which you reside if you meet the residency requirements-- usually 6 months.
