Who can file for an uncontested divorce?

Agreeing on most major issues, like child custody, property division, and spousal support, means that your divorce is uncontested. While it is cheaper and faster, it's not for everyone. Summary dissolution allows a very limited number of people to file simply because of the extremely strict requirements.

Filing for summary dissolution means that you meet every single requirement:

  • One spouse has been a state resident for at least six months and your county for at least three
  • Marital property is valued at $38,000 or less
  • Grounds for divorce are "irreconcilable differences"
  • No minor children are involved
  • Unpaid debts do not exceed $6,000
  • Spouses have been married for no more than five years
  • Both spouses sign a property settlement agreement
  • Neither spouse wants alimony
  • Both spouses have read the summary dissolution information book

Lest you waste valuable time and money, you and your spouse should review each qualification carefully to determine eligibility. Those who have not been married very long may find summary dissolution to be an attractive solution to traditional divorce.
