Uncontested Divorce Lawyer


Uncontested divorce

Divorce can be complicated and emotional, but it doesn’t have to be. For couples who are able to agree on the major issues of their divorce, such as the division or assets and debts, an uncontested divorce can be a much simpler and less expensive option than a contested divorce.

In Florida, an uncontested divorce is an option when both parties agree on all issues, including child custody, support, and property division.

To file for an uncontested divorce in Florida, the couple must meet certain requirements. They must have lived in the state for at least six months before filing and have a written agreement that addresses all issues in the divorce. This agreement is typically called a Marital Settlement Agreement.

The Marital Settlement Agreement must be in writing and signed by both parties. It must also be notarized and filed with the court. If the Marital Settlement Agreement addresses all issues in the divorce, the couple can then file for an uncontested divorce. This process typically involves filling out paperwork, paying a filing fee, and attending a final hearing to finalize the divorce.

Even in an uncontested divorce, it is important to work with an attorney to understand your rights, to ensure the Marital Settlement Agreement is legally sufficient and is not missing anything, and navigate the filing process correctly.

Uncontested Divorce FAQs

If you and your spouse cannot reach an agreement on certain issues, the divorce becomes contested. In such cases, you may need to seek legal assistance and potentially resolve the disputed matters through negotiation, mediation, or, if necessary, litigation in court.

While it is not legally required to have an attorney for an uncontested divorce, it is highly recommended. An attorney can provide valuable guidance, ensure that your rights are protected, help draft the necessary legal documents, and ensure that all legal requirements are met.

Both uncontested and collaborative divorces offer alternatives to the traditional adversarial approach, providing couples with more control over the outcome of their divorce and potentially reducing the emotional and financial costs associated with litigation. The choice between the two depends on the level of cooperation between the parties and their willingness to work together to reach a resolution.
