Couples marry with the idea that their marriage will last forever. But sometimes, a party is better off dissolving his or her marriage rather than staying in an intolerable relationship. Florida is a no-fault state, which means that no grounds, or reasons, are necessary to obtain a divorce. Florida basically has three requirements for a divorce:
One of the parties must have been a resident of the state of Florida for at least six months before the filing of a petition to dissolve the marriage.
Someone must pay a filing fee to the Clerk of Court.
One of the parties must state at a final hearing, under oath and before a judge, that the marriage is irretrievably broken.
