Odessa, FL Divorce Attorney
Florida is a no-fault state for divorce, which means that you do not need to prove fault on the part of your spouse (i.e. adultery, abandonment, etc…) in order to obtain a divorce in Florida.
The two means by which a divorce can be obtained in Florida is if the marriage is irretrievably broken, or if one spouse is mentally incapacitated. If the parties are having difficulties whereby they can no longer live together in a normal marital relationship, this constitutes an irretrievably broken marriage.
Even though fault is not required to obtain a divorce, fault can play a factor when awarding alimony as well as when determining an equitable distribution of the assets and liabilities of the parties.
