Florida is one of the many states that has abolished fault as a ground for divorce. This law lessens the potential harm to the husband and wife and their children caused by the process of divorce. All that is required is that the marriage be “irretrievably broken.” Either spouse can file for the dissolution of marriage.All that has to be proved is that the marriage is broken.(There is another, little-used ground: incompetency of one’s spouse). Fault, however, may be considered under certain circumstances in the award of alimony, and determination of custody issues.
Each divorce case is unique and therefore settlements vary. Even though fault is not an issue, the division of the marital assets may become a contested matter.
