Helping Good People At Their Worst Times

What exactly does no-fault mean in a divorce?

On Behalf of | Dec 22, 2015 | Family Law

Florida is one of the states where you can get a divorce without proving that either party did something wrong, like adultery or abandonment. If one party wants a divorce, then they can have it. It prevents a spouse from being forced to hire a private detective to spy on the other just so they can get out of the marriage. The no-fault provision in Florida’s divorce law actually works to somewhat heal the parties rather than throwing gasoline on the fire. I’ve had clients before say, “I’m not signing anything.” And I reply, it doesn’t matter if you sign or don’t.  One party cannot stop a divorce from happening, maybe slow it down a bit, not stop. Don’t be an ostrich
