10 Things Florida Residents Should Know About Divorce: Divorce in Florida
If you are a Florida resident who is currently going through or is considering a divorce, there are a couple of things about the divorce process that you should understand before speaking with an attorney. This will not only save you time but also money.
1.) Know the Basic Requirements for Filing a Divorce in Florida
If you or your spouse have decided to file for divorce in Florida, you must at least be a resident of the state or a military member stationed in Florida. If both parties agree that there are “irreconcilable differences” in the marriage and want a divorce, you can agree in writing and file an uncontested divorce to end the marriage. However, suppose one of you denies that the marriage is broken beyond repair or you have children together, in that case, the court might order therapy with a marriage priest, rabbi or counselor, or psychologist for up to three months before granting a divorce.
