Looking for attorney response. Thanks.

How do I transfer jurisdiction from NC to Florida? Does Florida have jurisdiction? How much would you charge to assist me in this matter?

Thanks.

To transfer jurisdiction you would need to file a motion to decline jurisdiction in the NC courts, if it was granted you would then commence litigation in Florida. In order for us to determine the fee you would need to schedule an initial consultation.
