My apologies for not getting back to you sooner. If you are in the middle of a divorce action, the court in which the case is heard - in this case Florida - would be able to state whether you can or can't leave the state with the child. It sounds like the order of protection you have didn't grant LEGAL custody (just physical custody) so you'll want to petition the court for permission to leave the country.
