In order to achieve this both parties should have already grieved the relationship, they must have tried everything already to save their marriage and are in an emotional place that will allow them to make decisions in a level headed manner.
My experience has showed me that the following guidelines for those seeking a divorce in mutual agreement is a must:
1 - If there is a history of domestic abuse (verbal or physical) a divorce in mutual agreement is rarely appropriate. If the abuse was physical it should not be pursued as a divorce in mutual agreement.
2 - If both parties are not in talking terms a divorce in mutual agreement would not be possible.
3 - Sometimes the mother wants to impose unrealistic visitation or expectations that should not be asked from the father; such as not having girlfriends meet their children or having supervised visitations for no other reason than because that's what she want, etc.
4 - Child support - This is mandatory in a divorce with children in Florida, unless the other parent cannot be found child support must be calculated and submitted along with the divorce paperwork. A motion to deviate from the calculations ca be incorporated with the paperwork however it must be calculated.
There are many other guidelines but these are the ones that I see the most that I see on a daily basis in my office.
