What is a no fault divorce in Florida?


  • The term no-fault relates to the grounds for divorce. 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’re litigating or settling issues that revolve around financial matters or child related matters, not grounds.
  • 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.
