Florida Family Law FAQ

What are the residency requirements for filing for divorce in FL?

At least one spouse must have been a resident of the state for a minimum of six months before filing for divorce. Additionally, the divorce action should be filed in the county where the non-filing spouse resides.

How is child custody determined?

Florida child custody is determined based on the best interests of the child. Factors such as the child's relationship with each parent, the ability of each parent to provide a stable environment, and the child's preferences (if of sufficient age and maturity) are taken into consideration.

What is the process for legally changing a child's name in Florida?

The process for legally changing a child's name in Florida involves filing a petition with the court, providing notice to the other parent (if applicable), and attending a hearing. The court will consider the reasons for the name change and make a decision accordingly.

Can same-sex couples adopt in Florida?

Yes, same-sex couples can adopt in Florida. Florida law allows for adoption by individuals, married couples, and same-sex couples, and does not discriminate based on sexual orientation or gender identity.

What are the grounds for filing for divorce in FL?

In Florida, the grounds for filing for divorce include the marriage being irretrievably broken or one of the spouses being mentally incapacitated. Florida is a no-fault divorce state, meaning that proving fault is not necessary for the dissolution of a marriage.
