Grounds for Divorce in Florida
Florida is a pure no-fault divorce state. That means that not only do you not need to allege fault in order to obtain a divorce; Florida law does not require that you prove grounds like adultery or cruelty. You simply need to have a marriage that has suffered irretrievable breakdown which simply means at least one party states they no longer wish to be married.
In addition to the stated ground, to obtain a divorce the petitioner must satisfy the residency requirement. At least one of the spouses must have been a resident of the State of Florida for at least six months before the case is filed.
Contested vs. Uncontested Divorce
An uncontested divorce is a divorce in which both parties have come to a full agreement on all issues connected to the divorce. That means the parties have no outstanding disagreement concerning the division of marital property and debt, child support, alimony/spousal support, or child custody/parenting plans/visitation. The parties can file for divorce and submit their marital settlement agreement touching on all issues. If all goes well, the parties can obtain their divorce as soon as four to six weeks after filing. A contested divorce, on the other hand, is any divorce in which there are any outstanding issues not already incorporated into a settlement agreement. Many cases are filed as uncontested divorces and are then settled prior to trial.
