Thanks for your question and good afternoon.
Unless both of the parties here are agreeable to counseling then I am afraid she can file for divorce.Florida has adopted no fault divorce and either party here can file and seek such a divorce.
You can try to resolve it with the other party here and see if they will agree to counseling.
but i was thinking with as young as we are would it make a difference on his decision
If the other party will got agree to counseling there is no mandatory requirements here under Florida law.You can certainly try to convince them to voluntarily go and seek to reconcile here.About the best you can do.
Grounds here for divorce in Florida
Grounds for Filing: The Petition for Dissolution of Marriage must declare the appropriate Florida grounds upon which the dissolution of marriage is being sought. The appropriate lawful ground will be that which the parties agree upon and can substantiate, or that which the filing spouse desires to prove to the court. The dissolution of marriage grounds are as follows: (a) The marriage is irretrievably broken. (b) Mental incapacity of one of the parties. (Florida Statutes - Chapters: 61.052)
In case you need them here are Florida divorce forms and self help.I hope you are able to reconcile but if not you can use this or a divorce lawyer.
