Divorce is a legal process by which a marriage is terminated between two individuals. A divorce restores an individual’s right to marry someone else. The process also legally divides marital assets and debts and determines the care and custody of the children and the financial support of the other spouse.
Divorce in the State of Florida, does not require fault to be proven to obtain a dissolution of marriage. Therefore, since no-fault grounds for divorce are available in Florida, either spouse may obtain a divorce, even if the other spouse does not consent to the divorce.
For many reasons it is important to have an experienced and compassionate divorce lawyer. In most cases, the primary issues of divorce that are to be decided are alimony, or spousal support, child custody, child support, visitation, and property division. When spouses agree on resolving these issues, they can obtain a divorce twenty (20) days after the case is filed in Florida. This type of divorce is usually referred to as an Uncontested Divorce.
