How do I go about having the jurisdiction of my CA divorce/custody agreement changed to FL? My ex-wife and children have lived in FL since 2000 and I have been a resident since 2003.

Easy as 1, 2, 3. Get California form FL-560. Fill it out. File it with the California court, pay the filing and transfer fees, and have a copy of the form personally served on your ex-spouse. If no one contests the hearing, your request for a transfer order will be granted, and then you take the new order to the Family Law courthouse clerk, nearest to where you live. The file will then be requested by the Florida court, and transferred to it.
If this is not accomplished within 30 days from the date of the order, the file remains with California.

Good question.I AM ALWAYS LIABLE said:My response:
You're welcome so much!
Now, the only question is - - will you do this correctly?
eksalok said:Good question.
I have located the form and have just a few more questions.
As I mentioned we all reside in FL, however, we are in different counties. Does it then make a difference as to where I request that the court transfer the case? Or am I correct in assuming that it would be best to request it be transfered to the county that she and the children reside in?
If it makes a difference (and as if it weren't apparent) my intent is to attempt to have the custody agreement amended.
