Family Law



Divorce


Florida is a no fault state. In other words, this means that in a Florida divorce case, a spouse does not need to prove that the other spouse is at fault for causing the break up and the end of the marriage. Florida does not require evidence of adultery, desertion, or other fault based ground. Instead, to obtain a divorce decree, the petitioning spouse must prove three things:


  1. A marriage existed between the two spouses
  2. One spouse has been a resident in the state of Florida for at least six (6) months
  3. The marriage is irretrievably broken


Couples should attempt to come to an agreement about as many issues on their divorce, including: child support, alimony, time sharing and any property division.  There are two types of divorces: an contested divorce and an uncontested divorce.


  1. Contested—The parties are unable to reach common ground and agree on the different issues, and litigation may become necessary to resolve all of the issues.
  2. Uncontested—Is a cost-effective strategy that can be utilized only when the parties to a divorce can agree to all of the issues.


In a divorce case, the judge will render a decision in all of the following matters: alimony, chid support, child custody (time-sharing), division of assets and debts, and any other relief the party may request.
