What Type of Divorce Is Right for You?

The state of Florida recognizes three types of divorce. If you and your spouse decide that staying together is no longer viable, you may wish to discuss your case with a Miami divorce attorney and find out what type of divorce is right for you. Making the right choice is important for helping you reach a solution that is satisfactory and mutually beneficial for you and your spouse.

Simplified Dissolution of Marriage
This is a unique form of divorce that only a select few people qualify for. If you have no children from the marriage (and are not pregnant), and agree on all basic aspects of your divorce, both spouses can complete a financial affidavit and property settlement agreement forms then skip straight to the final divorce hearing. You may not even need a divorce attorney in Miami to file for this type of divorce.

Contested Divorce
This is the most common type of divorce. A contested divorce requires both spouses to appear before a judge multiple times to plead their case, and a judge will give orders and rulings based on established formulas, procedures, and presented evidence. This will ultimately end the marriage but often leaves a lot of risk on the table and could wind up creating an unsatisfying conclusion.

Uncontested Divorce
This is similar to a simplified dissolution of marriage, but requires negotiation and careful crafting of a final divorce agreement without a judge being involved. Any couple can file for an uncontested divorce, but both spouses must be able to work together. If they cannot agree on even a single provision, they will have to file a contested divorce and a judge will need to get involved.
