The Florida Divorce Statutes
In Florida, statutes are arranged by Title, and those Titles are arranged by Chapter. The Chapters are further divided into Parts and the Parts are divided into Sections. As we go through this overview, keep in mind that the Florida Statutes refer to "divorce" as "dissolution of marriage."
The following illustrates how the Florida Divorce Statutes are categorized. The Florida Divorce Laws are civil in nature, not criminal, so we look to Title VI (Civil Practice and Procedure). And within Title VI, the Florida Divorce Statutes are included in Chapter 61 (Dissolution of Marriage; Support; Time-Sharing). Chapter 61, in turn, is divided into Part I (General Provisions) and Part II (Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act).
And, the Parts are further divided into individual Sections such as the Florida child custody laws in section 61.13 and the Florida child support laws in section 61.30.
In order to maximize your chances of a fair and equitable result in your divorce case you should be familiar with the components of the Florida Divorce Laws that apply to your Florida divorce based on your individual situation.

In the next segment of the
Florida Divorce Laws you will find a brief description of the second component, the Family Law Rules of Procedure.
You should be familiar with each of the above components in order to maximize your chances of a fair and equitable result in your divorce case. You may also want to consider this three part overview of the Florida Divorce Laws in determining whether you should schedule a consultation with an experienced Florida divorce lawyer for your divorce in Florida.
