According to Florida State Law, only marriages that are irretrievably broken can obtain a divorce. A Petition for Dissolution of Marriage is filed by one of the parties and the divorce proceedings begin. Ideally, it would be best for 2 spouses to settle their issues amicably, but that is not always the case. When there is a disagreement on the issues at hand – such as alimony, child support and custody, the divorce is then considered contested.
