A court in Florida that does not have jurisdiction to modify a child custody determination, could issue a temporary order enforcing:
- a visitation schedule made by a court of another state; or
- the visitation provisions of a child custody determination of another state that does not provide for a specific visitation schedule.
If the Florida court issues a temporary order enforcing visitation provisions from elsewhere, that court is required to specify in the order a period that it considers adequate to allow the petitioner to obtain an order from a court having proper jurisdiction. The temporary order remains in effect until an order is obtained from the other court, or the specified period expires.
