Irretrievably Broken Marriage in Carrollwood:

In order to get divorced in Florida:

  1. One spouse must have been a resident of Florida for six months; and
  2. The marriage must be irretrievably broken.

It is not difficult to prove a marriage is irretrievably broken. Both parties must simply agree that the marriage cannot be saved. However, if your spouse objects, the court may make you wait three months or attend counseling with a neutral third party, such as your minister, rabbi or a licensed psychiatrist.

Dissolution of Marriage without Litigation

A marriage where there are no minor children that both parties agree is unsalvageable may be simply dissolved by the judge.

Parenting Plan to Minor Children

Custody of any minor children must be worked out before your marriage can be terminated. The court may also require you and your spouse to attend counseling if you have minor children. Unless you and your spouse can agree to a parenting plan, the court will divide custody. This is done under a standard known as the “best interests of the child”. A divorce attorney may be able to help you negotiate a parenting plan that suits your family’s individual needs.
