Orlando Divorce Lawyer

A Central FL Attorney Who Cares About You

Divorce is one of the hardest things to go through, as it carries an emotional and physical toll on you, your partner, and your children. Our team at Schlegel Law Group in Orlando understands the personal side of divorce, and our boutique size firm allows us to dedicate personalized time and attention to your particular case. 

Our Orlando divorce attorneys aim to voice our clients’ interests in the courtroom and the negotiations room so that you feel confident that your goals and needs are appropriately addressed. 

Is Florida a No Fault Divorce State?

Florida is a no-fault divorce state, so you do not have to prove any specific grounds for divorce, such as adultery. Either spouse can file for no-fault divorce merely by citing that the marriage is "irretrievably broken" (Fl. Stat. § 61.052 (2020)). 

However, if you do seek to cite a fault for your divorce, the judge may take that into consideration when determining things like alimony. Spouses seeking divorce in Florida must also be a resident of the state and have lived there for 6 months before filing.

What Is a Simplified Divorce?

There are 2 divorce options in Florida – simplified and regular. Simplified dissolution is a favorable divorce process for couples who are still on cooperative terms and can collaborate on the separation.

The Simplified Process Is a Quicker & Easier Way for Couples Who:

  • Mutually agree to the separation;
  • Do not have minor children;
  • Are not seeking alimony;
  • Have agreed to a written property division settlement; and
  • Agree to the simplified procedure that waives the right to a trial and appeal.

The Orlando divorce lawyers at our firm have significant experience guiding spouses through this kind of collaborative divorce and can help represent your interests and goals in the negotiation process
