In Florida, there is generally a 20-day waiting period between the time that a petition for divorce is filed and the time that a final judgment granting dissolution of marriage will be entered. However, under section 61.19, Florida Statutes, a judge, on a showing that injustice would result from this waiting period, may enter a final judgment granting the divorce at an earlier date.
