Can I get a divorce if I was married in a different country or state?
The simple answer to that question is yes you can. The more complete answer is the attorney's favorite answer to all legal questions; "it depends". The first requirement is whether you (the person wanting to get divorced) has continuously lived in the state of Florida for at least six months. If the answer is yes to that question than usually you can divorce your spouse according to Florida law. Of course each client's needs and facts are different and it would be necessary for you to visit with an experienced Fort Myers divorce attorney. What if you have no idea where this person is and you haven't seen them in years? Can you still divorce them? The answer is still yes. With the proper paperwork filed you can divorce that person.
