Thank you for your question and for asking for me.
Since the NJ order was registered in FL, all the FL courts can do is enforce the NJ order as written, they cannot change that order. Thus, they were proper in sending the motion to modify or change back to NJ. The only way to get venue moved to FL is to file an objection to the motion to modify in NJ and a motion to release jurisdiction to FL and argue since neither parent is a resident of NJ and the children are no longer in NJ, the state of NJ no longer has any continuing legal interest in the matter and jurisdiction should be transferred to the state where all parties reside, FL. The NJ court has to decide to release jurisdiction before you can move everything to FL.
