Is It Necessary to Prove Fault in a Divorce in Florida?

Sometimes, I am approached by clients whose spouses may have cheated on them, abused them emotionally, or abandoned the relationship. I always sympathize with them because I understand that those are all difficult issues and working through them is not easy.

It is important to note, though, that Florida is a No-Fault State. This means that you do not need to prove a reason for a divorce. Many years ago, you would have had to prove adultery, abuse, or abandonment. Nowadays, all you have to do is plead and allege that your marriage is “irretrievably broken”. It only takes one side to do this.

If you would like to learn about this or any issue surrounding divorce, give us a call at 561.276.5880.
