Grounds for Divorce in Florida
Only two grounds for divorce are recognized under Florida divorce law – an irretrievable breakdown of the marriage, or mental incapacity of the parties. The vast majority of divorces in Florida are based on the ground that the marriage is irretrievably broken. This type of divorce is “no-fault.” It is not necessary to prove that one spouse is at fault in causing the breakdown of the marriage. One party has to simply allege and testify that the marriage is irretrievably broken. We can assist you in making sure your petition for divorce is technically accurate, complete and filed in the appropriate court.
Important Issues that Must be Addressed and Resolved in the Divorce
In a Florida divorce the judge will enter final court orders which can impact you and your children immediately and for years to come, so it is vital to come to court prepared and well-represented by knowledgeable and experienced family law attorneys. Matters to be determined in the divorce may include:
- Parental Responsibility for the children and a Parenting Plan,
- The equitable distribution of marital assets and liabilities,
- The duration, amount and type of alimony to be paid by one spouse to the other spouse,
- The amount of child support to be paid by one spouse to the other spouse,
- Whether one spouse is required to pay the other spouse’s attorney fees and costs,
- The enforceability of any prenuptial agreement or postnuptial agreement.
