What are the Requirements for a Simplified Divorce?
Getting a simplified divorce can be less expensive and time-consuming than going through traditional divorce litigation. However, not everyone is eligible for a simplified divorce. In order to qualify for a simplified divorce, you and your spouse have to meet certain requirements. These requirements include:
- A relatively short marriage (usually less than five years)
- No children
- There must a collaborative divorce agreement written outside of a court setting
- Both spouses must concede that there is no way to salvage the marriage
- There must be minimal property and assets to divide
These requirements are not always clearly established and are often fairly subjective. If you think you and your spouse may qualify for a simplified divorce, you should contact a lawyer to discuss your options.
