While parenting is a rewarding experience, it is also hard (regardless of the age of your children). What could make parenting even more difficult is being unhappy with the mother or father of your children since a happy parent is considered to be the best parent.  

Studies have shown that children do better when parents get divorced. While there is no clear-cut answer as every family is different, having a child living in conflict or instability can unfortunately cause more issues for the child. There is no easy answer, but if you and your spouse are able to agree that divorce would make you better people and ultimately better parents then working together will make the divorce process easier, less emotional and less costly.  

Working together to create a parenting plan in the best interest of your child and entering a settlement agreement cordially is beneficial for all. If you and your spouse are able to work with one another then you may be eligible for an uncontested Dissolution of Marriage with minor children. 

What are the requirements in Florida for divorce with minor and/or dependent children? 

  1. YOU ARE MARRIED AND ARE SEEKING A DIVORCE; 
  2. You and/or your spouse have lived in Florida for at least (6) months prior to filing for Dissolution of Marriage; AND 
  3. ONE OR MORE CHILDREN HAVE BEEN BORN TO THE WIFE DURING THE MARRIAGE (even if they are not the Husband’s children), or the Wife is currently pregnant; 
  4. ONE OR MORE OF THE CHILDREN IS A MINOR OR IS DEPENDENT, and  
  5. YOU AND YOUR SPOUSE AGREE ON ALL ISSUES IN THE DIVORCE (division of assets and/or debts, alimony, time-sharing with the child(ren), child support, etc.), and 
  6. YOUR SPOUSE IS COOPERATIVE AND WILLING TO COMPLETE ALL NECESSARY Documents AND TAKE A PARENTING CLASS
