You don't mention whether your husband has actually filed for divorce yet. If there is a case pending, you can request temporary support to get you over the transition. If there is no case pending, you need to file for Dissolution of Marrige without minor children using forms provided by the Clerk of Court.
This is for informational purposes only and is not legal advice upon which anyone should rely. Nor does it create any attorney client relationship.

If you feel that you need to be prepared for the possibility of divorce or if you would like to get a head start, you can contact the Miami Dade Legal Aid office or hire an attorney that can assist you with filling out the forms through the Self Help Department of the Family court. You will need to seek an award of temporary support to assist you in the transition from the divorce to being on your own.
