harmitch:I'd like to file the Simplified Dissolution procedure Form. Is this permissble if the other party, even though willing to sign, lives out of State?
harmitch:It seems with the simplified version both parties have to be present at the final hearing.
That's correct. However, you seem to be equating living out of state with an inability to attend the final hearing. If so, I'm not sure why you'd do that. Have you discussed with your wife whether she is willing to travel back to Florida to attend the hearing. If she's not willing, then you wouldn't be able to use the simplified form even if she lived in Florida.
