New Port Richey Uncontested Divorce Lawyer
Navigate the Courts Quickly for an Amicable Divorce
Sometimes, a marriage fails, and no one is worried about who is to blame. Both parties agree on how everything should be divided and you both want to end things as quickly and easily as possible. In these cases, a Pasco County divorce attorney can help you work through mediation and a negotiated settlement.
The courts can grant an uncontested divorce in Florida if:
- There are no children under 18, adopted or otherwise
- Neither party is pregnant
- At least one spouse has lived in Florida for six months
- Spouses agree on division of debts and property
- Neither party is seeking alimony
- Both sides agree to seek an uncontested divorce
An uncontested divorce in Florida is also called a Simplified Dissolution of Marriage. This type of settlement works well for spouses who are willing and able to cooperate to get a simpler, quicker divorce.
For a simplified dissolution of marriage, a New Port Richey family lawyer can help you fill out paperwork, file motions promptly, and finalize your divorce settlement in writing.
