The State of Florida is a no-fault divorce state, meaning the court will not assign fault to either party for the divorce. Neither spouse can prevent the other from obtaining a divorce. Marriage is not a prison and an inmate who is incarcerated for life cannot impose a life sentence on their spouse. She/he has the right to move on with their life. The inmate does not have to consent to the divorce.
