Florida is a No-Fault State
Before you can start the divorce process, you first have to determine whether or not you’re eligible to do so in the first place. In Florida, one of the two parties of the divorce has to have lived in the state for a period of at least 6 months before filing for divorce. The divorce filing must occur in the same county where the filing party resides in Florida. The major exception to this, of course, is military personnel who live in the state of Florida but may be stationed elsewhere.
In certain circumstances, medical issues are also grounds for divorce. For instance, if a spouse has been mentally incapacitated for at least three years, you have grounds for divorce.
