Filing for Divorce in Florida?

Divorce in the state of Florida is known as dissolution of marriage. In order to file for dissolution of marriage, either spouse is required to have lived in the state for a minimum of six months prior to filing.

There are only two legal grounds for dissolution of marriage in Florida:

  • The marriage is irretrievably broken
  • The mental capacity of one of the parties for a period of three years

If the marriage is irretrievably broken, it means that there are differences and disputes between the marriage partners that cannot be resolved and have caused the complete breakdown of the marriage. Many factors will be considered in your situation. Some Florida divorce laws will apply when you share a child, and there is also alimony and property division to consider as well, so be sure to contact us if you have any questions.

Simplified Dissolution Process

In efforts to simplify and accelerate cases, Florida provides a streamlined dissolution process if certain conditions are met.

To qualify for simplified dissolution, the following conditions must be met:

  • The spouses agree that the marriage is unsalvageable
  • The spouses have no minor children or current pregnancy
  • The spouses are not seeking alimony
  • The spouses’ financial information is exhausted by the court-approved financial affidavits
  • The spouses are willing to give up their right to trial and appeal
  • The spouses are willing to go to the clerk’s office to sign the petition (whether separately or together)
  • The spouses are willing to attend the final hearing
