Uncontested Divorce Lawyer in Fort Walton Beach
What is an Uncontested Divorce?
Some couples ending their marriage are able to come to an agreement in a peaceful manner. When both parties amicably agree on all the issues, such as alimony, child custody, child support, and property division, it is considered an uncontested divorce.
The following requirements must be met in order to qualify for an uncontested divorce:
- Both parties agree that the marriage is broken
- Mutual agreement on division of property and debt
- Mutual agreement regarding alimony
- Mutual agreement regarding child custody and child support
- One spouse has lived in Florida for at least six months
