Interstate Orders
adkins family law interstate orders

  • Overview

Anyone who lives in another state and is affected by a Florida order, or needs Florida jurisdiction, can apply for both enforcement and modification of existing orders from any other state or country. For example, the parties lived in New York when they got divorced. Then, the mother moved with the children to Florida and the father moved to Maryland. Well, none of the parties live in New York anymore, and they want to address the time sharing or child support piece of the New York divorce. Because the children now reside in Florida with mom, the time sharing and child support can be addressed in the Florida Courts.
