Becoming A Florida Resident

In order to become a Florida resident, you first should file a Declaration of Domicile at the office of the Circuit Court or register to vote at the Registration Office at the County Courthouse.  Even though there is no fixed period of time required to become a Florida resident, it is important that you learn of the various requirements in order that you may take advantage of the many benefits and privileges available to a Florida resident.  As a nonresident of Florida, you are urged to visit the County Courthouse and obtain from the Clerk of the Circuit Court an affidavit of intent to establish your residence in Florida. When you have completed this form, your temporary absence from the state of Florida does not affect you residency status so long as the intent to return continues.

It’s time for you to take that next step, retire, and establish your residence in Florida. Jacobsen Homes is here to make your transition to a residence in Florida as easy as possible. Schedule a tour with Jacobsen Homes to see our new selection of manufactured homes.
