Talk and Work It Out (Learning to Get Along®)It may seem as though everything in life today has do-it-yourself options that can save you time and money, and now, divorce falls into that same category.

In Florida, you can opt for a simplified divorce if both parties are in agreement that the dissolution of your marriage does not require a court battle. With this option, you can be divorced in under a month’s time.

Here are the 9 requirements for a simplified divorce:

⦁ No minor or dependent children born to or adopted by the parties
⦁ The wife is not pregnant
⦁ Complete agreement as to all financial issues (doesn’t have to be in writing)
⦁ One of the spouses must reside in Florida for at least six months before filing
⦁ Both parties sign the Petition under oath and attend the uncontested final hearing
⦁ Both parties agree that the marriage cannot be saved
⦁ Both parties must waive alimony
⦁ Both parties are willing to give up their right to trial and appeal
⦁ Both parties are willing to give up their right to full financial disclosure
