Uncontested Divorce Supportive Counsel You Can Rely On

Fort Walton Beach Uncontested Divorce Lawyer

What is an Uncontested Divorce?

Couples ending their marriage are able to come to an agreement in a peaceful manner. When both parties amicably agree on all the issues, such as: alimony, child custody, child support, and property division, it is considered an uncontested divorce.

The following requirements must be met in order to qualify for an uncontested divorce:

  • Both parties agree that the marriage is broken
  • Mutual agreement on division of property and debt
  • Mutual agreement regarding alimony
  • Mutual agreement regarding child custody and child support
  • One spouse has lived in Florida for at least six months

How to File for an Uncontested Divorce in Florida

Our firm will first prepare a "Petition for Simplified Dissolution." Upon completion, we will file the petition with the circuit court clerk's office in the county where either you or your spouse currently reside. A filing fee must be paid when we file your petition; the price of these fees are determined by the county clerk.

You must have a written marital settlement agreement, which states how you and your spouse decided to divide the property and debts. We will ensure it's signed by you and your spouse and file it along with your petition. Then we will prepare a "Final Judgement of Simplified Dissolution of Marriage" for the judge to sign when your divorce is finalized. Before that, both parties will need to appear before the court for a short hearing.
