Clearwater Uncontested Divorce Attorney
Let Us Help You and Your Family Through This Process
Divorce is rarely easy for anyone; however, some couples have the good
fortune of ending their marriage amicably, or at least without an undue
amount of fighting. In situations where spouses can compromise on the
divorce process, they are able to get what is called an
uncontested divorce. This means one spouse will file for the divorce and the other spouse
will not contest it. If you’re interested in getting an uncontested
divorce, talk to one of our Clearwater family attorneys at Tinny, Meyer
& Piccarreto, P.A. We have more than 35 years of legal experience
to offer you and your family.

How It Works
To get divorced in Florida, you don’t need to file a ground for divorce.
However, you do need to meet some eligibility requirements. To have a
simplified dissolution of marriage, you must meet the following criteria:
- No children under the age of 18
- Wife is not pregnant
- At least 1 spouse has lived in the state for at least 6 months
- Spouses agree on property and debt division
- Neither spouse is seeking alimony
- Both spouses agree the marriage is broken and want the simplified dissolution
If you meet these requirements, you can prepare a “Petition for Simplified
Dissolution,” and file it with the circuit court clerk’s office
for the county where you or your spouse live. You should also fill out
a “Final Judgment of Simplified Dissolution of Marriage,”
which a judge will sign when the divorce is finalized.
You and your spouse will then need to attend a hearing in court. The judge
will make sure everything is in order before signing your final judgment,
after which you will be officially divorced.
