If you are filing a divorce in the Florida court system, one or more of the spouses must have lived in Florida for at least the last six months. It is not required that both spouses reside within the state.
The Florida divorce forms should be filed in either the county where the defendant (the spouse who is filing for divorce) lives or the county where the spouses lived together before they separated. Doing this can make the process of achieving an affordable, fast divorce quite simple.
When it comes to receiving a judgment, Florida does not have a mandatory waiting period in place. Because there is no waiting period, this means that in some cases, you may be granted an immediate divorce. However, the judge may choose to delay judgment for up to three months. The delay might be done to give the parties the chance to reconcile in cases where the judge feels it may be in the best interest of both parties. However, this seldom occurs in an uncontested divorce.
