Divorce in Florida

Florida is one of the many states that have abolished fault as a ground for dissolution of marriage or “Divorce”. The only requirement to dissolve a marriage is for one of the parties to prove that the marriage is “irretrievably broken.” Either spouse can file for the dissolution of marriage. One must prove that:

  1. A marriage exists,
  2. One party has been a Florida resident for six months immediately preceding the filing of the petition, and
  3. The marriage is irretrievably broken.

The reason for the irretrievable breakdown, however, may be considered under certain limited circumstances in the determination of alimony, equitable distribution of marital assets and debts, and the development of the parenting plan. The parties, facts and circumstances in each case are unique and so are the outcomes. In this troubling and emotionally hampering situation there are many intricacies regarding these laws that you must be aware of. Our compassionate family and divorce law attorneys can help guide you through this tumultuous phase.
