I'm happy to help you.
You have to have lived in FL for 6 months immediately preceding the divorce filing in order to file there.
Even though we are both Fl residents?
Actually, FL is your place of domicile - domicile is shown by driver's license, where you are registered to vote, where your car is registered,
but do you have a home address in FL still?
No, just parent's home address that some mail is sent to.
If you two don't have any kind of a residence (home) in FL then you may not file in FL.
Thank you for your help. I think it's going to be painful to do this here in AL.
I'm sorry - I wish the news were better. (Better to find out, however, then to file in FL and then she moves to have it dismissed for lack of jurisdiction).
Good luck and please click accept to give me credit for responding.
