Florida does not require a spouse to file for divorce on grounds that are fault-based. Instead, for a spouse to file for divorce in the state, one of the following two reasons can be used:
An "irretrievable breakdown in marriage" is the most common way for couples to file for a no-fault divorce in Florida since "mental incapacity" is a much longer and more complicated process.
The courts do not consider fault-based grounds when approving a divorce but it might consider faults when deciding on matters such as custody, support, property division, etc.
Since 2000, our firm’s founder, Attorney Ada M. Barreto, has been a certified Florida family law mediator. What does this mean exactly? It means that if you would like to settle your divorce in a more private and cost-effective manner, we can serve as your mediator.

However, if you find yourself needing legal representation in a contested divorce our Miami lawyer has the knowledge and experience to advocate your interests.
