What is The Divorce Process like in Florida?

Florida is a no-fault divorce state. It is not necessary to prove fault or blame someone for the breakdown of the marriage. Either spouse can simply express their intention to divorce and move forward. To file for divorce, at least one spouse must be a Florida resident for at least six months, and the couple must be separated for at least 20 days before filing for divorce. Once you file for divorce, the process may take several months. You have several options for moving forward. This can include divorce mediation, a courtroom trial, collaborative divorce, arbitration, etc. The divorce process handles property division, child support, spousal support, and child custody.

Understanding How to Start the Divorce Process

When one spouse, known as the petitioner, submits the required documentation to a circuit court clerk the divorce process begins. These documents include: Petition for the Dissolution of Marriage, Social Security Affidavit, Financial Affidavit, and Uniform Child Custody Justification and Enforcement (UCCJEA) Affidavit (if required). After filing the forms and settling the filing fees, they must be officially delivered to the other spouse through a process called service.

How Long Does It Take to Process a Divorce in Florida?

The length of time it takes to get a divorce in Florida depends on the type of divorce:

  • Uncontested divorce: Takes between six weeks and three months.
  • Simplified divorce: Takes 30 days.
  • Contested divorce: Takes between six months to a year.
  • Initially contested but later mediated process: Takes between 4 and 6 months.

The average uncontested divorce takes three months, and the average contested divorce takes 12 months. However, a contested divorce can take up to two years or even longer in extreme circumstances.
