What are the grounds for divorce in Florida?

Florida is a “no-fault” state.  The only claim that needs to be made to request a divorce 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.
