Second District Reverses Finding Under UCCJEA

The Second District Court of Appeal reversed yesterday in M.A.C. v. M.D.H. as to the lower court’s order finding that North Carolina, and not Florida, was the home state of the child in that paternity action.  However, it was undisputed that, while North Carolina may have been the home state as of the date of the hearing, Florida was the home state for six consecutive months prior to the date of filing.  As the lower court applied the former date rather than the latter, the Second District reversed its ruling.
