Posted on October 13, 2016 at 1:15 PM


Florida may not modify a child custody determination made by a court of another state unless the Florida court jurisdiction to make an initial determination, and:


The court of the other state determines it no longer has exclusive, continuing jurisdiction, or that a court in Florida would be a more convenient forum under; or

Either Florida or a court of the other state determines that the child, the child’s parents, and any person acting as a parent do not presently reside in the other state.
