Legal Question in Family Law in Florida

In the state of Florida when a judge asks the petitioner in divorce case to prepare a final judgment as an instruction during the judge's closing statement is this attorney required by law or Florida Rules of Civil Procedure to let the respondent see and review this final judgment for a specified amount of time before it is submitted to the judge to be entered into the court record? If so, is this part of Discovery? Thank you in advance for answering this query.
