In the State of Florida, you do not need your spouse’ permission to divorce. If one spouse wants a divorce and the other does not, a divorce is imminent. Also, unlike some states, there is no waiting period of a year before the divorce can be granted.
There is a residency requirement to get divorced here…you must be a Florida resident for 6 months prior to filing a divorce petition. You must also declare the marriage irretrievably broken, but other than that, Florida is a no fault state. You do not have to declare adultery, abandonment, violence or any other reason to get a divorce.
