When you think of divorce, you might imagine spouses yelling at each other across a courtroom and the process dragging on for months, costing them a large amount of money. However, not every divorce in Florida has to be this way. Some spouses agree to end their marriage, but they are able to cooperate and file an uncontested dissolution of marriage. This process may seem simple, but it is still important to have the right legal assistance, as things can go wrong. Always contact an uncontested dissolution lawyer in St. Johns County for assistance.
A divorce is uncontested when both spouses agree to get divorced, as well as agree on how to resolve all relevant issues in the divorce case. Such issues include the division of marital property, alimony, child support, and custody. Once you have an agreement, you can present it to the court, and if the court approves your arrangements, it can finalize your divorce without any further legal proceedings.
In some situations, when spouses do not have children or neither spouse requests alimony, it might be possible to file for a Simplified Dissolution of Marriage, which is an even simpler and faster process.
Too often, one spouse will persuade the other to agree to divorce terms that are not in their best interests. Further, an agreement might not be in accordance with Florida divorce laws, causing possible delays with the court’s approval. For these reasons and more, you want the right attorney overseeing your uncontested divorce.
