Those live in Florida may be able to file for a simplified dissolution of marriage if certain requirements are met. Many people choose this route when dissolving a marriage because it may be done quickly. The basic requirements for filing for a simplified dissolution include at least one of the spouses being a Florida resident for six months, and both parties must cooperate throughout the entire process.
If a couple has children, none of them may be minors or dependents. This means that the children must all be over 18 years of age and not dependents due to disabilities or any other reason. Children of one spouse from a previous marriage will not be considered as long as the other spouse has not adopted the children. Additionally, the wife must not be pregnant at the time of the dissolution of the marriage.
