Under certain circumstances, spouses may jointly file for divorce and schedule their case for a final hearing within thirty days or less. Pursuant to Florida Family Law Rule of Procedure 12.105, this is known as a simplified dissolution of marriage.
Eligibility for a Simplified Dissolution of Marriage
To be eligible for a simplified dissolution of marriage in Florida, the following must be true:
- The parties have no minor or dependent children;
- The wife is not pregnant;
Rule 12.285, Florida Family Law Rules of Procedure, requires each party to a family law matter to disclose certain financial information to the other party. Disclosure is strictly enforced in cases with money at issue, including child support, alimony, and equitable distribution or property division. Parties are required to follow Rule 12.285’s disclosure requirements in two ways: (i) providing a financial affidavit; and (ii) exchanging certain documents (also known as mandatory disclosure).
