Simplified Dissolution of Marriage

Divorce, also known as dissolution of marriage, is a legally and emotionally complex process.  In less legally complex cases, the State of Florida currently employs a procedure known as simplified dissolution of marriage.  Just like it sounds, a simplified dissolution of marriage is a simplified procedure for divorce designed to quickly dissolve certain types of marriages.  In order to qualify for a simplified divorce the parties must:

• Have no minor children (under 18) or no dependent children.

• The wife must not be pregnant.

• At least one party has lived in Florida for the past six months.

• You have come to an agreement on how your assets and liabilities shall be divided.

• You both agree the marriage is irretrievably broken.

• You both have agreed to use the simplified dissolution of marriage procedure rather than a regular dissolution.

• Both parties must sign the necessary documents.

• Both parties must appear before the judge together for the final hearing.

If you qualify for a simplified dissolution of marriage it is important that both parties are aware they are giving up certain legal rights entitled to them in a regular dissolution of marriage.

Making the choice to enter into the simplified dissolution of marriage process can save you a great deal of time and money.  If you are interested in a simplified dissolution of marriage Winston Law, P.A. can evaluate your individual case and determine if you qualify for the process.  If your case does qualify for a simplified dissolution, Winston Law, P.A. offers affordable flat fees for uncontested divorce.  For more information please contact Winston Law, P.A. at [email protected] or (561) 670-9375.
