What Are the Requirements for Divorce in Florida?
Considering divorce? Unsure about what you need? We can help you. First, there is a residency requirement. You or your spouse must have lived in the state for at least six months before you are able to file for divorce. The next step is to file for the dissolution of marriage in the court where you are currently living, and this petition is then served to the spouse, or defendant. A response to the petition must be filed 20 days after service.
After these steps, you will begin the process of negotiating matters such as property division, debt division, alimony, and child support or custody matters. Florida is a no-fault divorce state, which means that it is not necessary for one or the other spouse to prove fault in the marriage. One or the other spouse does not need to agree to end the marriage.
