Who Qualifies for a Summary Dissolution?

Summary dissolution is simply a shortened version of the divorce process. It is designed to help couples who do not have many complications get through divorce faster. While this type of divorce does still require fees, it is usually much cheaper.

  • Both spouses agree to end their marriage through a summary dissolution
  • Both spouses agree upon the grounds of their divorce being irreconcilable differences
