Frequently Asked Questions

My spouse and I were recently married in Las Vegas. We live in Massachusetts and came to Florida on a vacation a few weeks ago. Unfortunately, our marriage is not working out. I like Florida and want to get divorced here. Can I?

No, under these circumstances you cannot get a divorce in Florida. You must be a legal resident of the State of Florida to obtain a divorce here. That means you and your spouse must reside together, as husband and wife, for six (6) months preceding the filing for divorce. In this specific scenario, you would have to obtain a divorce in your home State of Massachusetts.
