A divorce, commonly called a dissolution of marriage is the termination of a legal marriage by court order. As Florida is a no fault state, a husband and wife can get a divorce based on irreconcilable differences, without references to or accusations of bad character. It only takes one party to want a divorce, the other does not have to agree. However, if the parties are not sure whether they want a divorce, the court can order counseling.

Two grounds that exist that entitle a person to a divorce are as follows:

  • The marriage is irretrievably broken.
  • One of the parties has been adjudged mentally incapacitated by a court for at least three years.

In order to receive a divorce, one of the parties must have resided in Florida for at least six (6) months.
