Since the Brenner v. Scott decision on January 6, 2015, marriage became legal between same sex and LGBTQ individuals in Florida.
The divorce procedure is essentially the same when it comes to the distribution of the marital assets and debts, retirement accounts, Social Security benefits, as well as alimony and inheritance rights.
For instance, for the parties to be able to file for divorce, at least one of them must be a resident of Florida for six continuous months prior to filing the petition.
This can be shown by either a Florida Driver’s License or having an Affidavit of Residency executed by someone who has first hand knowledge of when the person moved to the state.
