You must file both the action contesting jurisdiction and a lis pendens (notice of suit pending) against the foreign judgment, but only to obtain a stay of enforcement of the judgment. Your objection to recognition of the foreign judgment is still valid and the judgment may be denied recognition, if you filed your objection within 30 days of the date that the court clerk serves notice on you of the registration of the foreign judgment. See Section 55.604 Fla. Stat.

A Florida lis pendens form can be found in Fla. R. Civ. P. Section 1.918. All you need to do is modify the form to describe the subject property as the foreign judgment registered, and further explain that the action is being brought to deny recognition of the judgment.
