What you should know about Florida divorce law

To get divorced in Florida, you don't have to prove that your spouse is at fault, and your spouse doesn't have to agree to divorce or even participate in the process for the marriage to be legally ended. Florida law provides for no-fault divorce, and you can simply state that your marriage has undergone an irretrievable breakdown. If your spouse chooses not to participate, then it may be possible to get a default judgment in order to end the marriage.

What can prompt motions to terminate parental rights in Florida?

We have written often about the shift that has taken place in the landscape when it comes to how the Florida law approaches family law matters related to child custody and parental involvement. In recent years, especially when handling divorce cases, the focus has moved from trying to decide which parent should have the greatest control over parenting to one that seeks to keep both parents actively and equally involved.

Change in circumstances can require parenting plan modification

After you went through the process of establishing an enforceable parenting plan with your ex-spouse, you may have felt relieved that the process was finished. Matters were settled, and you could begin moving on with your life and being a loving parent without the distraction of divorce. After all, divorce decrees are supposed to be treated as permanent.

New custody provisions protect rights of parents in the military
