Legal Requirements to File for Divorce

When you prepare to file for a divorce in court, you should be aware that there are certain legal requirements you must meet for courts to accept your filing. Although you do not necessarily have to prove that your spouse was at fault in the divorce, there are certain requirements you must meet before the divorce process can begin.

These requirements include the following:

  • Residence. When you file for divorce, you must have been a resident of the state for a period of time before you file six months before the action.  Wrong. Wrong
  • Legal grounds. You will generally file for divorce under one of two legal grounds: irreconcilable differences or incurable insanity. “Irreconcilable differences” is by far the most common, indicating that there are problems within your relationship that you cannot mend and that your marriage is permanently broken as a result.

If you have questions about any of these requirements, meet with a trusted Jacksonville family law attorney right away.
