Florida is what’s called a no-fault state when it comes to divorces, meaning that the only inquiry as to whether a divorce should be granted is whether there are irreconcilable differences necessitating the end of the marriage. But even when both sides can agree to end the marriage, they might not agree to custody issues with minor children or distribution of marital assets. Disagreements result in what’s called a contested divorce that makes the process far more complex and often times quite contentious, requiring the services of a seasoned attorney to assist in managing all requirements to obtain a divorce under Florida law. And even when it appears that the parties will not contest any aspect of the divorce, a lawyer can still make sure the process moves quickly and efficiently. Whatever the varied reasons for a couple to divorce, the process is undoubtedly complex and painful for almost everyone who endures it.
