Grounds for Divorce in Florida

Florida is no-fault state, with two grounds for divorce: an irretrievably broken marriage or mental incapacity.

  • The marriage is irretrievably broken.

It is only necessary for one spouse to allege in the Petition that there is an irretrievable breakdown in the relationship and for a divorce to be granted. If the other party denies that the marriage is broken, the result may be a 90-day cooling-off period (time to give couple the opportunity to resolve existing differences and maybe repair the marriage). If the husband or wife cannot resolve their disagreements in that period, typically, a divorce decree can be issued by the court.

  • Mental incapacity.

The second ground is mental incapacity of one of the parties for a period of at least three years.

Reasons such as adultery are not grounds for divorce in Florida, although it may influence other issues such as equitable distribution and alimony.

Florida Residency Requirements to File for Divorce

Residency requirements for at Florida divorce are that at least one spouse must be a resident of Florida for six months before filing the petition of dissolution, which can be filed in the county where either spouse resides, or the county where the spouses last lived together prior to separating.

Residency can be established by proving two things:

  1. You were physically present in Florida. (But that does not mean you never traveled outside the state during the six month period).
  2. You intended during that time to make Florida your primary residence.

Some facts that can be used as proof that you intended to reside in Florida:

  • Signing a lease or purchasing a home;
  • Obtaining permanent employment in Florida;
  • Joining a church, country club, or other social organizations in Florida;
  • Obtaining a Florida driver’s license or auto registration;
  • Filing state taxes in Florida.

How Much Does an Uncontested Divorce Cost?

If you feel comfortable handling the matter yourself and you don’t mind doing a little research into your state’s legal procedures, you might spend less than $500. If you hire an attorney to take care of the details for you, that figure will likely increase substantially.

An uncontested divorce even with attorney’s fees, for the most part, is generally cheaper than a contested divorce. Those fees can quickly reach $4,000 or more. For the most accurate information on divorce costs, you really can’t get an answer until you speak directly with an attorney who deals in divorce and family law on a regular basis.

How to Serve Your Spouse in Florida

First, no matter where your spouse lives, you personally can not serve your spouse with divorce papers. In most cases, you need to have a sheriff or a private service processor serve the papers.

If your spouse lives in a different county in Florida, you may need to ask the clerk to send the materials to the Sheriff’s office for that county, or you can seek a private service processor certified in that county.

Rules for Spousal Support in Florida

Alimony or spousal support may be ordered for one spouse to pay to the other in a divorce. A purpose of alimony is to alleviate any unfair economic burdens that may befall the lower-wage-earning spouse or the non-wage-earning after a separation or divorce.

In Florida, alimony is determined after the court has equitably distributed the couple's assets and liabilities. After that division is made, the court will consider whether alimony ought to be paid, by whom, and what amount, if any. Spousal support can be granted to either the husband or the wife.

How to File an Uncontested Divorce in Florida?

When important marital and child-related issues are resolved (or in the process) you can start your uncontested divorce process.

  • Prepare the Paperwork  

In seeking an uncontested divorce, be prepared to deal with the paperwork. The amount of paperwork you will need to file will vary depending on the specific circumstances of your divorce. For example, if you have children under the age of 18, then you will be required to submit a detailed parenting plan, as well as your child support agreement.

To obtain an uncontested divorce, a spouse must first prepare a petition and file it with the circuit court clerk’s office. Other documents must also be prepared and filed. Even though it is a no-fault and amicable case, it is important for all the agreements to be in writing. Each spouse must sign and have them notarized.

A final judgement will be signed by the judge for the divorce to be finalized.

  • Attend the Divorce Hearing

Once an uncontested divorce case nears its conclusion, a final hearing will be scheduled. This is a very important part of the process, but an uncontested divorce hearing usually is relatively smooth and painless.

Florida Divorce Filing Fee

Court filing fees are in addition to the cost of using DivorceFiller.com. This cost may vary by county. Please check with your local courthouse to determine the exact amount.
