The Marriage is Broken
Under Florida law, you are eligible for divorce if:
- You or your spouse have been a Florida resident for more than six months; and
- Your marriage is irretrievably broken.
A marriage is irretrievably broken when one party believes that the marriage cannot be saved. If one party objects, the court has the power to abate the case and sent the parties to counseling, but in practice, this rarely, if ever, happens.
Simple Dissolution of Marriage
If neither spouse objects to ending a marriage where there are no minor children or property at issue, the court may simply enter a judgment granting your divorce.
Parenting Plans & Timesharing for Minor Children
If there are minor children, custody of them must be worked out before you can get divorced. If you and your spouse cannot agree, the court will determine what is in their best interests. If you and your spouse can work out an agreement called a parenting plan, the court may enter it as a valid custody arrangement, along with a schedule for timesharing, or “visitation”.
