In Florida, dissolution of marriage actions, which are commonly referred to as divorces, are based on either the marriage is irretrievably broken or mental incapacity of one of the spouses. Florida does not require a party to prove fault as a grounds for divorce, i.e. no-fault divorce. Divorcing couples may settle their divorce terms outside of court through negotiation, mediation, or collaborative law. Because of high legal costs and animosity often generated by divorce litigation, many couples opt to settle their divorce rather than go the trial. In the majority of divorces, the parties utilize the services of a certified Family Law Mediator to facilitate settlement discussions and negotiations. If a case is resolved by way of an agreement, the parties do not have to participate in a timely and costly trial before a judge.
