FLORIDA NO-FAULT DIVORCE
Florida is a “no fault” divorce state. This means that either party may seek a divorce without proving any reason for it other than the spouses don’t want to be married anymore. The spouse seeking a divorce simply needs to state that the marriage is “irretrievably broken.” This rule relieves the court of the complicated duty of deciding who is at fault, and the parties to the marriage are spared having to talk about painful personal issues in court. However, a judge can consider who is to blame when deciding the details of the divorce, such as whether one spouse will receive alimony, how the property and debts will be divided, and who will get custody of the children.
