I wanted to clarify yes I submitted an objection I asked the magistrate to add a couple of things to his findings and also to adjust the financials as I have less money now obviously and when I filed which is often the case. Primary issue I'm trying to figure out is what we have to have another hearing I am assuming the magistrate can review my objection and just simply re-issue his findings because if you would revise them he would have to then also notify my husband even though our divorce has been issued a Florida default by the clerk. What I am primarily trying to figure out is although they sent us their initial report dated June 10 and they allow 15 days to respond which would mean June 25 and I filed my objection yesterday June 19... How long do I have to decide if I want to issue a motion to dismiss? I assume that's at any point prior to the judge signing the final order am I correct? What I'm really asking is I issued an objection, if the magistrate agrees or disagrees does he have to re-issue a notice like he did the first time with that same 15 day response period or can he just adjust his findings and go ahead and send it to the judge? That will help me gauge how much time I have to decide if I want to dismiss thanks

Thank you for your new question.

The objections go to the judge and it is up to the judge to decide to send it back to the magistrate or to hold a hearing in the court before the judge.

You can file a motion to dismiss at any time before the decision is rendered. The decision though on your objections is up to the judge who gets the objections and the magistrate report and reviews them and decides if the magistrate needs to have a hearing to reconsider or if the judge himself is going to hear the objections on the report.
