Dissolution of Marriage (Divorce)
In Florida, divorce is called Dissolution of Marriage. Either spouse may file for divorce, so long as the filing party can show that (1) a marriage exists; (2) the marriage is irretrievably broken; and (3) at least one spouse has lived in the State of Florida for at least six (6) months prior to filing.
Everyone’s circumstances are different, so the process can vary from case to case. For example, if a couple has no children, no assets, and is not seeking anything more than divorce, then they may be eligible to file for a simplified divorce. If a couple seeking a divorce share minor children, then the divorce case will also address child custody issues. Because all cases are different, we believe that each case, including yours, should have a unique strategy for moving forward.
