How to Secure an Uncontested Divorce
In order to seek a divorce, at least one spouse must be able to demonstrate
that he/she is eligible to file for dissolution of the marriage. While
any number of causes may lead to a petition for divorce, all cases must
be able to meet a few basic requirements.
The prerequisites for a divorce case in Florida are as follows:
- Proof that a spouse has resided in Florida for 6 months
Evidence of an irretrievably broken marriage,
- Substantiated claims of a spouse's mental incapacity
If these terms have been met, the couple is free to begin the divorce process.
In an uncontested dissolution, both parties come to agree on critical
issues of their separation prior to a court hearing. This option involves
minimal stress, and can often be organized with a flat rate fee.
The following must be settled in an uncontested case:
- child and spousal support
- division of property
- time sharing and child custody
While this process is much faster than other types of divorce, it does
not entirely bypass the court system. An experienced legal professional
can be a valuable asset at this time, ensuring that you take the proper
steps to validate the dissolution of your marriage. Our Jacksonville
divorce attorneys at Hutchinson Law are capable of guiding clients through a wide range
of circumstances, and can help you secure favorable terms of divorce in
