Foreign Judgments are those entered by a similar court to our Circuit Courts, but in a different state. Under certain circumstances, it may be both permissible and appropriate to transfer that case to Florida for future legal issues. For example, if spouses were divorced in Texas, and neither party lives there, it may be proper to move the child support portion of the case to Florida, or both the timesharing and child support portions to Florida. There are governing statutes that determine when and what portions of a case can be transferred from the original or “foreign” jurisdiction to Florida. The attorneys are Easley & McDonald are experienced and knowledgeable about these jurisdictional rules, and can assist with an analysis of your case to determine is transferring your foreign order is the right choice for you.
