How to File for Divorce in Florida

We can help you file a petition for dissolution of marriage with the local circuit court or respond to divorce papers with which you have been served. If you and your spouse can agree on all decisions – including property division, child custody, alimony, and/or child support – your divorce can be finalized without a trial. If there are any disagreements, your case will proceed through the normal course of litigation.

Grounds for Divorce in Florida

There are two options a couple has when filing for divorce in Florida.

Mental incapacity – A spouse can also file for divorce based on the mental incapacity of the other spouse. Mental illness must be occurring for three years before the filing spouse can submit a petition for divorce.
