Divorce Laws in Florida
In order to get a divorce in Florida, one or both parties must have resided in the state for a minimum of 6 months. Florida is a no-fault divorce state. This means you don’t have to prove the fault of the other spouse in order to seek a divorce. You only have to show that the marriage is irretrievably broken, or that one of the parties has had a mental incapacity for a preceding period of a minimum of 3 years.
When you file a petition for divorce, you and your spouse will need to reach an agreement on important factors, such as:
- Division of assets and property
- Child custody
- Child support
Once you file the petition to dissolve a marriage, your spouse will have the 20 days to respond. If no response is given, and there are no minor children involved, the court will enter a judgment to dissolve the marriage. However, if there are minor children involved, or your spouse disputes the petition, the court may order you and your spouse to consult with a marriage counselor or other party to seek reconciliation.
Mediation or formal litigation may be necessary to pursue a divorce. Once the court has determined that the marriage is irretrievable, and all the important decisions have been settled, it will order a dissolution of the marriage, and the divorce will be final. It is important to have a knowledgeable family law lawyer on your side to protect your interests throughout the process.
