Residency Requirements for Divorce in Florida

If you wish to file for divorce in Florida, you must first meet a residency requirement. The requirement stipulates that:

  • Either you or your spouse must have been a Florida resident for at least six months prior to filing for divorce

To qualify as a Florida resident, you must maintain a legal residence for at least six months. A legal residence is not just a house – it’s a permanent home. A Florida driver license, for example, is not enough to qualify as proof of residency. If you try to file for divorce without meeting the residency requirement, your case may not be accepted, or it may be dismissed.

Compassionate Guidance for Each Aspect of Divorce

No case is too complex for Mr. Gill’s legal team. Whatever legal difficulties you face, he is dedicated to helping you navigate each step, protecting your rights and promoting a stronger future for you and your loved ones.

Far too many divorce attorneys market themselves as bulldogs in the courtroom, aggressive advocates who can “win” their clients’ divorces. But when an emotionally charged process ratchets up in intensity and hostility, no one truly wins. You deserve to have a legal advocate who works to avoid litigation, someone who will instead seek to mediate or negotiate a swift, amicable, and cost-effective resolution so you and your family can move forward. You can find the compassionate counsel you need at the Law Office of Thomas P. Gill Jr., P.L. Discover how we can be of service today.
