Family Law - Divorce

These matters are governed by the laws of the State of Florida. In general, parties wishing to obtain a divorce should contact their attorney. Florida law allows a simplified divorce that can be handled by the parties themselves in the following circumstances:

The parties certify under oath that:

  • There are no minor or dependent children of the parties and the wife is not now pregnant
  • The parties have made a satisfactory division of their property and have agreed to payment of their joint obligations
  • The husband and wife or one of them has been a resident of Florida for at least six months prior to filing the petition for divorce
  • The marriage between the parties is irretrievably broken
  • There is no claim for alimony, and
  • They waive the right to appeal

For more information concerning a simplified divorce, the parties should contact the Clerk of the Circuit Court's office in the Courthouse or their attorney.
