What are the grounds and residency requirements to file for an uncontested or "no-fault" divorce in Florida?

Florida Dissolution

There are several different types of dissolution (divorce) procedures available under Florida laws. Our company's products and services focus only on uncontested legal actions where the parties will agree on all terms of the divorce or at least will not make any objections. Contested divorce actions fall outside the scope of our company as they typically require counsel by a licensed attorney.

Please review the requirements listed below to determine which procedure is right for you.
