In order to file for a divorce in Florida either you or your spouse must be a resident of the State of Florida for six months.
Florida is a no-fault state. This means that you do not have to prove fault of the other spouse in order to be granted a divorce. For example, you do not have to prove adultery, domestic violence, lack of financial support or any other “bad” behavior as a condition to getting a divorce. If your marriage is irretrievably broken and one spouse is a resident for six months, then you can file for a divorce in Florida.
Begin to gather copies of your financial documents. For example, obtain copies of personal and business tax returns, check books, bank statements, credit card statements, pay check stubs, W-2’s 1099’s. These documents will be necessary to review in handling your case.
