Panama City Uncontested Divorce Attorney
What Constitutes an Uncontested Divorce in Florida?
Sometimes divorce can end in utter chaos with both spouses completely despising each other. On other occasions, two parties in a divorce may end their marriage amicably and in agreement about how things will be settled. When both spouses agree on property division, alimony, child support, and child custody, it is considered an uncontested divorce.
In order to qualify for an uncontested divorce, spouses must meet these requirements:
- Agree that the marriage is beyond repair
- Come to a mutual agreement on division of property and debts
- One spouse has been a resident in Florida for at least six months

The Benefits of Uncontested Divorce
In contested divorce cases, the most common resolution is going through trial and having a judge make the final decisions on all aspects of the divorce. Contested cases are often very emotionally charged and stressful and can take a long time to resolve. An uncontested divorce, on the other hand, allows you and your spouse to have more control over the situation so that you have more of a say in the decisions you know will work best for your family. Furthermore, because you are able to come to an agreement on these factors, you don't have to spend countless hours going through the court system and spending money on unnecessary fees.
Uncontested divorce allows you to save time and money and reduces the amount of stress you face. Above all else, you are able to shield your children from difficult court matters that could have a lasting impact on their lives. If you are considering a divorce and believe that pursuing a resolution outside of court will work best for you, please contact our firm to for a case review.
