Under Florida law you can bring about dissolution of your marriage in a manner that is uncontested when there are "irreconcilable differences" in the marriage. Couples often seek this solution when they have reached a final decision that they will be divorced. You may want to avoid the complexity, the costs, the length of time and the disagreements that divorce cases can bring about.
While divorce can be very difficult on all the parties involved, a divorce attorney in Fort Myers may be able to quickly handle your uncontested divorce in a cost-effective and straightforward manner. These divorces are available to those who can come to an agreement on all the details of their divorce without intervention of the courts.
Understanding Uncontested Divorce in Florida
Uncontested divorces fall into two major categories:
- Consent Divorces - Where you and your spouse agree to all major issues in the divorce.
- Default Cases - Where a spouse fails to appear to contest the divorce, either because they cannot be found or because he or she simply chooses not to oppose the dissolution of the marriage.
It may even be the case that you and your spouse agree that you want a divorce and have agreed to the division of your assets and liabilities. At Calvo & Calvo, Attorneys at Law, we take pride in being able to help our clients achieve an optimum resolution to their divorce situation.
When agreements are in place regarding the following, the uncontested divorce process can move forward:
The Marital Separation Agreement
In an uncontested divorce, you most often need and want a marital separation agreement. There is also a short court hearing that takes place as part of this process. There are certain legal requirements such as being a resident of the State of Florida for 6 months and filing for dissolution of the marriage in the proper county that need to be properly handled.
Once the requirements are met, and with the assistance of a caring and professional attorney from our family law firm, the proper legal papers can start to be filed with the courts. There are many steps that need to take place and be properly handled to ensure your divorce goes as you intend.
Ensuring Proper Filing of Your Divorce
One of the key elements in your uncontested divorce is what the marital separation agreement states. This agreement can affect your life and the lives of loved ones for many years to come. Issues such as child support, child custody, the division of property, the division of debts, the handling of health insurance, visitation rights and many more must be handled in an understanding manner that takes care of both the immediate and future needs of all concerned. We would like the opportunity to assist you and you with your divorce in an efficient, understanding manner.
