The parties to the dissolution may file a petition for simplified dissolution if they swear under oath that: -the parties do not have any minor or dependent children together; the wife does not have any minor or dependent children who were born during the marriage; and the wife is not now pregnant;
The parties must show that made a satisfactory division of their property and have agreed as to payment of their joint debts.
The clerk thereafter submits the petition to the court. The court considers the cause. The parties then appear before the court, and may testify at the court’s discretion. Then the court, after examination of the petition and personal appearance of both parties, and if the requirements of the Florida rules have been established, enters a judgment granting the dissolution.
