Florida Grounds for Divorce

Florida is a no-fault divorce state, which means that you do not need to prove or provide grounds for divorce. There is no need to assign blame or fault in this type of divorce. You need only state that your marriage is irretrievably broken when you file for a dissolution of marriage.

Florida does have a residency requirement that stipulates that at least one spouse must have been a Florida resident for at least six months before filing for divorce.

Another option, for spouses that have no children and minimal assets, is a simplified divorce. This is essentially a streamlined divorce that allows for less paperwork, fewer court appearances, and less time in negotiations. The following stipulations are required to qualify for a simplified divorce,

  • No children under the age of 18 (biological or adopted)
  • The wife cannot be pregnant
  • At least one spouse has lived in Florida for at least 6 months
  • Both spouses have agreed on division of assets and debts
  • Both spouses agree that the marriage is irretrievably broken

Putting Children First

While most legal processes usually include finances, the inclusion of the family’s interest makes a divorce unique. That is why we focus heavily on children’s best interests. We place high consideration on the long-term impact on the children involved in the divorce.
