Florida residents whose marriage has not worked out will have several options to consider. The divorce option they choose will depend on a variety of factors, such as how long the marriage lasted, the assets they acquired during the marriage and if they have children.
When you need a quick divorce
In some cases, the divorce process can be done in as little as 30 days. This can be done through the Simplified Dissolution of Marriage. In this type of divorce, the spouses do not have to give a reason for the marriage ending and there are no conflicts between them. Usually, this is an option for couples who have been married a short time, have no children and relatively few if any assets they need to divide.
When neither party admits fault
You might opt for a no-fault divorce. In that situation, you and your ex-spouse might list irreconcilable differences or incompatibility as reasons for the split.
When the parties agree and can work together
This type of divorce is an uncontested divorce. In this type of divorce, you and your ex-spouse agree that the divorce is the best option and then negotiate and reach a divorce agreement including:
- Division of assets and debts
- Child custody
- Child support
- Spousal support
When you need more time to figure out the issues
In those cases, you might opt for a limited divorce. This type of divorce is like a legal separation and asks the court to supervise the process. When you opt for a limited divorce, you ask for additional time to negotiate the divorce issues. During this time, you and your spouse do not live together and do have to enter a relationship with anyone else.
Even the simplest divorce can have nuances. You can prepare for the divorce process by gathering a team of professionals to help you guide you through it.
