Can an out of state divorce be enforced in Florida?

Yes, as a matter of fact, under Article IV of the U.S. Constitution there is what is called the for faith and credit. What that does is once an order is issued in any state, the sister state has to respect that order and enforce it. Now, if a divorce is entered and a final judgment is issued in a sister state, what is to happen is domestication. You have to take that order of final judgment and domesticate it here in Florida for that order to be enforced.
