Requirements for an uncontested Florida divorce

The term that Florida law uses to describe the divorce of two individuals is "dissolution of marriage." The dissolution of a Florida marriage does not have to be based on any type of fault as the state recognizes no fault divorces. Additionally, divorces that are uncontested may be expedited and may resolve faster than divorces in which the parties cannot come to agreement on certain divorce-related matters.

In some cases, parents can actually try to interfere in the other parent's visitation.
