How to Get a Divorce in Florida?
Florida is a no-fault divorce state. It means that divorcing couples do not need to prove fault in order to get a divorce. In Florida, you can get a divorce on the grounds that your marriage is “irretrievably broken.”
While you are not required to prove that your spouse committed marital misconduct to file for divorce in Florida, you must meet the residency requirements outlined in Fla. Stat. § 61.021. Under Florida law, one or both spouses must live in the state for at least six months before a petition for divorce is filed.
While filing for divorce seems like a straightforward process, going through a divorce can be complex. This is why you need an experienced divorce attorney to protect your rights and help you achieve a favorable outcome in your case.
Contested vs. Uncontested Divorce in Florida
Our attorneys at Laing, Weicholz, Schley assist clients going through two types of divorce in Florida:
Contested divorce. When spouses are not able to reach a mutually acceptable agreement on all family law matters, they must pursue a contested divorce. When no agreement is reached out of court through mediation or other alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods, your case will be heard before a judge.
Uncontested divorce. When spouses are able to reach an agreement on all aspects of their divorce, including child support, alimony, and property division, the parties can seek an uncontested divorce. Uncontested divorces are faster and less expensive than contested ones.
It is essential to contact an experienced divorce attorney regardless of whether you and your spouse agree or disagree with the terms of your divorce. A lawyer will protect your rights and help you with legal advice to ensure that you achieve your goals.
