Who determines when I can get divorced?

In Florida Family Law, marriage is not classified as the private doings of two persons, but rather is formally observed by the state. Therefore, a marriage must be filed with the state in order to be considered official. It is the court’s opinion that dissolution of marriage is also a statutory cause of action. Therefore, it is the court’s job to determine the conditions upon which the divorce will be authorized. The right to a dissolution of marriage and all privileges and burdens in connection with it are regulated by F.S. Chapter 61, “Dissolution of Marriage.” See F.S. Chapter 61, “Dissolution of Marriage.”
