Florida Divorce Cases
In any divorce, certain issues will need to be addressed and settled between you and your spouse before the divorce can be finalized.
These issues may include:
If you and your spouse have come to an agreement concerning these issues, the process can proceed much more quickly and cost-effectively as an uncontested divorce.
If you and your spouse cannot agree on divorce issues, however, the divorce becomes contested. Your issues may be able to be resolved through further negotiation or through the collaborative law process. Should these methods fail, we can resort to litigation.
Florida Divorce Grounds
As a no-fault divorce state, Florida does not require that either spouse prove marital misconduct as “grounds” for the dissolution of the marriage. Either spouse can file a petition for divorce due to “irreconcilable differences”. The couple can claim that these differences have broken the marriage to the point where there is no hope for restoration. This is considered a “no-fault” divorce because it does not require either spouse to blame the other spouse with a particular fault to justify the divorce.
Another reason that spouses can use in Florida to file for divorce is mental illness. However, these divorces are rare as a no-fault divorce is a much simpler and faster route to take.
