What are residency requirements to file a family court action in Tampa, FL?

If a party is going to file a dissolution of marriage or other family law proceeding, that person must allege in the petition that at least one party has been a resident of the state of Florida for at least six continuous months prior to the date of filing. If the parties have minor children, or if the case involves minor children, then home state jurisdiction is also looked at.  Home state jurisdiction would be that the child has resided in Florida for at least six months prior to filing.  If not, then the case  cannot be filed unless the children resided in the state for six continuous months.  Email the law firm of All Family Law Group, P.A. or call us at 813-672-1900 to schedule a free consultation to discuss your case and obtain advise of the options available to you.  We will respond as soon as possible to your requests.
