In Florida, the basis for divorce is the irretrievable breakdown of the marriage. This means that the marriage is no longer viable and cannot be saved. In legal terms, this is referred to as "irreconcilable differences." The party seeking the divorce does not need to prove fault or wrongdoing by their spouse, and there is no waiting period for a divorce to be granted. However, if the divorce involves minor children, the court may require the parties to attend parenting classes or mediation to address issues related to the children's well-being. Additionally, property division, alimony, child custody, and child support may be contested issues that must be resolved during the divorce proceedings.
