What Are the Grounds for Divorce in Florida?

There actually are no grounds for divorce in Florida. Florida has adopted what is called a no-fault statutory default scheme, and I believe right now something like 38 of 50 states have, as well. In a no-fault divorce, you simply have to allege that the marriage is irretrievably broken. The idea of fault-based divorce is largely an antiquated one and is not employed in Florida.
