Divorces

Dissolution of Marriage

 
 

Overview

 
 

In Florida, divorce is known as a dissolution of marriage.  Florida is purely a no-fault divorce state, which means that so long as the marriage is irretrievably broken, at least one spouse is a Florida resident for at least six months, and the parties are mentally competent, then either party may file a Petition for Dissolution of Marriage.  There are contested divorces and uncontested divorces.  An uncontested divorce is one in which the parties have reached an agreement on all issues that are indicated in the petition(s), whereas a contested divorce means that at least one of the parties disagrees on at least one of the issues set forth in either of the party's petition(s) such as parental responsibility, time-sharing, division of assets and/or debts, alimony, and/or child support.
