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.

How Uncontested Divorce 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 of marriage
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.
