Divorce in Florida is a common legal process, even if it is unfortunate. Florida ranks third in divorce rates in the country, and sixth when it comes to family-related stress, according to a WalletHub study about stress in American lives. Divorce frequently comes with added problems related to who owns what, and what support you’ll receive in the long run. Bald Guy Legal may be able to help you mitigate the worst side effects of your divorce, and fight to get you the best possible outcome.
Grounds for Obtaining Divorce in Florida
Getting a divorce in Florida requires that you have a void (already ineligible) or voidable marriage, one that exists but can be terminated because it meets certain requirements. These requirements can include:
- Temporary lack of capacity at time of entrance;
- Entering into marriage as a joke or without realizing the importance of the union;
- Undisclosed impotence or other family-related irreconcilable difference; and
- Entering into marriage under duress, or perpetrating a fraud,

Common Side Effects of Divorce in Florida
Annulling a marriage in Florida can be costly, divisive, and affect you in a variety of ways. Some of the most common issues relate to:
- Alimony, or paying spousal support;
- Lost custody of children;
- Child support, in the event you do not maintain custody or have a share agreement; and
- Division of property.
An attorney may be able to limit the side effects of your divorce, or mitigate them entirely, based on your situation.
How Much Does Divorce Cost in Florida?
Divorce can be an expensive endeavor, especially when it is contested or there are property and children at stake. It’s impossible to say what divorce may ultimately cost you from a legal perspective, but if you believe you face a protracted battle, it’s important to be ready.

Some of divorce’s most harrowing effects are family- and financially-related. Taking a huge financial hit or losing custody of your children are some of the worst punishments imaginable, but the justice system may be inclined to give you no quarter. A Florida divorce attorney can improve your chances at a favorable outcome during divorce proceedings.
