No-Fault Divorce: Evidentiary Requirements in a Miami Divorce Petition

No-Fault Divorce

Is it necessary, under Miami, Florida law, to prove wrongful conduct such as adultery, in order to obtain a divorce? The answer is no, Florida is a “No-Fault Divorce” state. Under Florida’s Marriage Dissolution Act of 1971, it is no longer necessary to prove that either party is at fault for the breakdown of the marriage. The Florida court may now grant a judgment of dissolution (Divorce) on a showing by the parties that the marriage is irretrievably broken. While evidence regarding adulterous behavior can be admitted as overt evidence that the marriage is irretrievably broken, such evidence is not necessary. While the trial court is required to take evidence in order to determine that the marriage has in fact broken down, the court may grant the judgment based solely on the subjective testimony of each of the petitioners.
