Requirements for an Uncontested Divorce

An uncontested divorce is the most straightforward way to end a marriage if the spouses are in agreement over the terms of the divorce.

To qualify for an uncontested divorce, the couple must fulfill several requirements, including:

  • Spouses agree that the marriage is broken and want an uncontested divorce
  • The wife is not pregnant
  • There are no children under the age of 18
  • At least one spouse has lived in Florida for at least six months
  • Neither spouse is seeking alimony
  • Spouses agree on the division of property and debts

Spouses who meet these requirements can file a petition for simplified dissolution of marriage with the county clerk’s office where either spouse resides. If you and your spouse have prepared and signed a written agreement as to how your property and debts will be divided, you can file this with your petition.

Prior to the divorce being processed, you and your spouse will need to attend a short hearing in a family law court. The judge will verify that you meet all the requirements and have submitted all the necessary paperwork for a simplified dissolution of marriage. Upon verification that everything has been completed, the judge will sign the final judgment and you will be officially divorced.
