With many "transplant" residents coming to Florida each year, people often want to know whether or not they are eligible to get divorced in Florida. It is first important to know that Florida has a 6 month residency requirement. This means that if you have been living here for at least 6 months, you are eligible for a divorce. Florida is a no-fault state, which means anyone can get divorced if he or she cites irreconcilable differences in his or her petition for divorce. However, at this time a homosexual couple cannot divorce in Florida, regardless of whether or not the marriage was legal in the state where it occurred.
