How to Get a Divorce in Florida

The official word for divorce in Florida is “dissolution”. June 2, 2010

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.

The divorce process is highly emotional and traumatic for everyone it touches. We can assist you through the process of divorce. Call Now for free phone consultation 954-531-7789 or email to

Irreconcilable Differences.. What is this all about? April 8, 2010

No Chance of Staying together!

Irreconcilable Differences  is  the usual basis for granting a divorce (dissolution) in no-fault divorce states.   Florida is a No-Fault state. If one party says the marriage is irretrievable cannot be salvaged  and one spouse refuses to reconcile then such differences are proved to exist.

Any sort of difference between the two parties that either cannot be changed or the individual does not want to change can be considered irreconcilable differences.

Legal Definition: Differences between spouses that are considered sufficiently severe to make married life together more or less impossible. In a number of states, irreconcilable differences is the accepted ground for a no-fault divorce. As a practical matter, courts seldom, if ever, inquire into what the differences actually are, and routinely grant a divorce as long as the party seeking the divorce says the couple has irreconcilable differences.

Florida “No Fault State”: April 1, 2010

Did you know that Florida is one of the many states that has abolished fault as a ground for divorce… All that is required is that the marriage be “irretrievably broken.” In other words that the marriage cannot be put back together for example; that the parties have differences or disputes that cannot be settled and they must be so serious that they have caused the total and complete breakdown of the marriage.

 Either spouse can file for the dissolution of marriage. All that has to be proved is that the marriage is broken. In general few people ever contest whether the marriage is irretrievably broken. In most cases you can get divorce simple by asking for one and there is little that your spouse can do about it. There is nothing else you need to prove in Florida, which is completely different then in other states where you have to prove adultery or abuse etc.
