Can Florida decline jurisdiction by reason of a party's conduct?

Posted on October 13, 2016 at 1:20 PM

If a Florida court has jurisdiction in a case because a person who was seeking to invoke Florida’s jurisdiction engaged in unjustifiable conduct, then that court will decline to exercise its jurisdiction, unless The parents and all persons acting as parents agree to Florida taking jurisdiction; or a court of the state otherwise having jurisdiction determines that Florida is a more appropriate forum. Florida would also take jurisdiction if no court of any other state would have jurisdiction.
