Q. Which post-divorce motion or form shall I file in order to obtain a court order for my sons passport renewal & travel ?
A: Hello Linda, I practice in Pinellas County. This is a situation where you will need to file a Petition to Domesticate and Enforce a Foreign Order. This will allow Florida to exercise jurisdiction over the matter. It is important that your son has resided in Florida for the last six months continuously prior to filing the Petition. There may be a delay if the father's whereabouts are unknown, but at some point will likely result in the order being domesticated in Florida.
