Getting Divorced in Florida
When filing for divorce in Florida, spouses do not need to prove who is at fault for the divorce. It is a no-fault divorce state and all you need to state is simply that the marriage is “irretrievably broken” and that there is no chance you will be able to reconcile. The only other ground for divorce is if a spouse is mentally incapacitated for at least three years.
The Difference Between a Contested and Uncontested Divorce
There are generally two types of divorce – contested and uncontested. If you and your spouse agree to the terms of the divorce, including child custody and property division, this is known as an uncontested divorce. On the other hand, if you disagree on even one of these key issues, you will have a contested divorce and the process will likely take more time to resolve, unless you choose some form of alternative dispute resolution, such as mediation.
