Uncontested Divorce

Do You Understand The Terms Of Your Divorce?

An uncontested divorce may sound like the perfect situation for everyone involved – a fast process, no arguments and a smooth path towards the next phase of your life. Even better, you never need to take your case to court if you and your soon to be ex-spouse can work together in an uncontested divorce. If you’re in a situation where the two of you agree, why add unnecessary arguments? While this may look like a dream situation on the surface, your divorce is a legally binding process that could come back to bite you a week from now, a year from now or even 10 years from now. An experienced divorce attorney can work with you to ensure that you aren’t blindsided by an unforeseen complication.

What Are The Requirements For An Uncontested Divorce?

While an uncontested divorce may seem like the easiest option, Florida laws place limits on who is eligible to file for one. Also known as a “simplified dissolution of marriage,” couples must meet the following requirements:

  • Both you and your soon to be ex-spouse must agree that the marriage is broken
  • Both you and your soon to be ex-spouse must agree to an uncontested divorce
  • Neither you nor your soon to be ex-spouse can seek alimony
  • Both you and your soon to be ex-spouse must agree on how debt and property will be divided
  • Either you or your soon to be ex-spouse must have lived in Florida for six months or more
  • Neither you nor your soon to be ex-spouse can be pregnant
  • None of your children, biological or adopted, can be under the age of 18

Can I Back Out Of An Uncontested Divorce?

While an uncontested divorce may not take as long as a contested divorce, it still takes time to fill out and process all of the paperwork. If, during that time, you change your mind and challenge some of the previously agreed upon terms it is within your power to do so up until you sign the final divorce papers. Having an experienced divorce lawyer to discuss your case with will help prevent you from making any rash decisions and make the choice that will best benefit you and your family.
