What Is a No-Fault Divorce in Florida?

The term no-fault relates to the grounds for divorce. In Florida, there is no-fault, and the no-fault grounds are this: if you allege that your marriage has broken down irretrievably, that means that there’s no likelihood of a reconciliation, you will be divorced. Thereafter, you are litigating or settling issues that revolve around financial matters or child related matters, not grounds. In this situation, the breakdown of your marriage is not due to circumstances such as an extramarital affair, for example, but it just simply doesn’t work anymore and the parties no longer want to be married to each other.

The second no-fault ground in Florida is mental incapacity. Certainly, with the advent of the other no-fault grounds that my marriage broke down, it’s irretrievable, that is commonly used.
