There are only two possible grounds for divorce (or dissolution of marriage) according to Florida law. The first ground that may be plead is that the marriage is irretrievably broken. The second is the mental incapacity of the other party. If mental incapacity is an issue in your marriage and you are seeking a divorce, it is imperative that you contact a qualified Orlando divorce attorney. The pleading of mental incapacity as grounds for divorce is a complicated matter. Your experienced Orange county family law divorce attorney can ensure your case is handled properly from start to finish.
Florida is a no fault divorce state. As such, the irretrievable breakdown of a marriage does not have to be proven, just plead by both parties. Your Central Florida divorce attorney will state in your Petition for Dissolution of Marriage that the marriage is irretrievably broken. The pleading of the grounds for divorce is just one issue that must be addressed in the Petition. In order to protect your rights during this difficult time, it is wise to have qualified representation by an experienced divorce lawyer.
