Simplified dissolution of marriage, also referred to as a simple divorce, is a possible option or type of divorce available when the following conditions exist:
- The spouses do not have any minor children (by birth or adoption) of the marriage;
- The wife is not pregnant at the time of filing;
- The spouses agree in writing how the property and debt will be divided;
- The spouses must waive the right to alimony; and
- The spouses must waive the right to appeal.
If any of the aforementioned conditions are not met, then a simple divorce is not an option.

Do I Need an Attorney for a Simple Divorce?
First, when spouses say they want a simple divorce, they often mean they both agree on most aspects of the divorce. For example, the spouses may agree on who keeps the family home or a vehicle.
However, the spouses do not realize all the complexities of a divorce that must be resolved, including the designation of property as separate or marital property, division of retirement accounts, hidden assets, and unknown debt.
Once the spouses are informed about all of the intricacies of dissolution of marriage, they usually recognize an experienced divorce attorney is necessary to guide them through the process.
Secondly, there are strict eligibility requirements for a simple divorce, including there must be no children of the marriage, the wife must not be pregnant at the time of filing for divorce, the spouses must agree in writing how the property and debt will be divided, the spouses must waive alimony, and the spouses must waive the right to appeal.
If there is any dispute, even the smallest disagreement, regarding the division of property, alimony, or waiving the right of appeal a simple divorce is not an option. At this juncture it is imperative to consult an experienced divorce attorney about other types of divorce.
