Dissolution of Marriage and Divorce
In Florida, either the Husband or Wife can file a divorce action. A party is eligible to file for divorce in the State of Florida so long as one of the parties has been a resident of the State of Florida for at least 6 months immediately preceding the filing of the divorce action. Florida is a no-fault state, which means the party seeking the divorce does not need to establish a cause of action for seeking the divorce, only needs to state that the marriage is irretrievably broken. Within a divorce case, the issues of equitable distribution of assets and liabilities, spousal support/alimony, timesharing and attorneys' fees, suit monies and costs will be addressed, as applicable.
