Florida Is A 'No-Fault' Divorce State

Because Florida is a "no-fault" state with respect to divorce, the wrongdoing of either party is irrelevant. The spouse who wishes to file needs only to show either that the marriage is irretrievably broken or that one of the parties is mentally incapacitated. In addition to this, the spouse must also meet a six-month residency requirement.

Divorce Can Either Be Contested Or Uncontested

Divorces can either be contested or uncontested in the state of Florida. When both parties agree on the material terms of the divorce, support payments, and child custody, the proceeding will be uncontested, and will typically require less time to complete. If both parties do not agree to these terms, the divorce is said to be contested and any unresolved issues will be decided in a family court.
