How is a Simplified Dissolution of Marriage processed?

Simplified Dissolution of Marriage is a fast, easy and inexpensive procedure for ending a
marriage for eligible couples

To be eligible:

  • Both must agree that the marriage cannot be saved.
  • Both must agree on how to divide property and debts.
  • There must be no minor children of the marriage, and the wife cannot be pregnant.
  • At least one of you must have been a resident of Florida for the past six months.

Both parties must come to the Family Division with picture ID's, and fill out a Petition for
Simplified Dissolution of Marriage. Forms are available in the Clerk's office. An attorney is not
required, but if either of you has any legal questions, consulting an Attorney prior to filing is
advised. The Court will set a date for the Final Hearing at the time of filing.

Please provide four (4) extra copies of your hearing form and two (2) self-addressed stamped
envelopes for both Husband and Wife. You both will receive a copy of the Hearing Notice and
date by mail. This date will be no sooner than twenty (20) days after the filing. Both parties
must appear at the hearing.

The filing fee can be found here. If you do not meet the requirements for a Simplified
Dissolution, you may obtain other Divorce information from the Self-Help Coordinator. The Clerk
cannot assist you. You may act as your own Attorney and do all your own research, or you
may obtain an Attorney.
