Do You Qualify for a Simple (Uncontested) Divorce?
To qualify for a Simplified Dissolution of Marriage, also known as the Florida Uncontested Divorce or Simple Divorce, you and/or your spouse must:
1. have lived in Florida for at least 6 months before filing
2. AND all of the following are true:
If you do not meet the Florida uncontested divorce criteria above, you must file:
Divorce - No Property or Children,
or one of the following Florida divorce forms:
Dissolution of Marriage - With Property No Children
Each of you must sign the Florida uncontested divorce petition in the presence of a deputy clerk (in the clerk’s office), although you do not have to go into the clerk’s office at the same time.
You will need to provide picture identification (valid driver’s license or official identification card) for the clerk to witness your signatures.
After you've filled out the Florida uncontested divorce form, you should file the original with the Clerk of the Circuit Court in the county where you live and keep a copy for your records.
In addition to the Florida uncontested divorce petition, you must file the forms listed below.
Affidavit of Corroborating Witness This form must be signed by a person who knows that either you or your spouse has lived in Florida for more than 6 months before the date that you filed the petition for dissolution of marriage.
This affidavit may be signed in the presence of the clerk of the court or in the presence of a notary public, who must affix his or her seal at the proper place on the affidavit.
If you and your spouse cannot afford to pay the filing fees, you may fill out an Application for Determination of Civil Indigent Status, and file it with your petition for dissolution of marriage.
You may obtain this form from the clerk and he or she will determine whether you are eligible to have filing fees waived.
At the Final Hearing, the judge may grant a final judgment dissolving your marriage by signing the final judgment form you provided.
If you fail to complete this simplified divorce procedure, the court may dismiss the case to clear its records.
