Florida: Do you need a reason to get a divorce? By MaryCatherine Crock, Daytona Lawyer

Florida is among many states that allow for “no-fault” divorces. This means that one spouse does not have to show wrong-doing on behalf of the other spouse, nor meet other legal requirements, in order to get a divorce. Pursuant to Florida Statutes, there are two bases for a divorce: 1) the marriage is irretrievably broken or 2) there is mental incapacity of one of the parties. This means that parties are allowed to seek and accomplish a dissolution of marriage without any specific reason or wrong-doing on behalf of the other party.

Since 1986, Rice Law has assisted clients in dissolution proceedings in the greater Daytona Beach, Volusia County, and Flagler County areas.
