Is Florida a No-Fault State for Divorce?

Yes. The only claim required in a divorce petition is that the marriage is “irretrievably broken.”*    In fact, the court may dismiss your case if you incorrectly claim grounds like “adultery,” “mental cruelty,” or “abandonment.”

* Section 61.052(1)(a), Florida Statutes.   Section 61.052(1)(b), Florida Statutes, also allows you to claim the mental incapacity of a party.
