Can a spouse prevent a court from granting a divorce in Florida?
A spouse cannot prevent a court from granting a divorce in Florida. What the spouse can do is request from the court to order the parties to go to counseling. The court may order the parties to go to counseling to see if they can fix the marriage. Now, once they go to counseling and the spouse is adamant that he or she wants to get a divorce then there is nothing that the other spouse can do to stop the court from granting the divorce.
