Today, at work, I had to look up some information from Pinellas County Clerk of Court's website, and it caught my eye that they offer a service of "Declaration of Domicile" I likely, would not have paid attention to it before yesterday's class, and I had no idea that there was a service like that offered even though I had lived in Clearwater, Pinellas county for the last twenty years.... I wonder if there is something similar in Miami-Dade?
Here is the info from the website, and a link:
Declaration of DomicileA Declaration of Domicile is a sworn statement of permanent residency. It also states that you intend to maintain this county as your permanent residence.
If you are an American citizen, you will need to bring:
- A valid form of identification such as a driver's license or a Florida issued identification card. An out-of-state driver's license is acceptable.
- Your previous address and your present address.
If you are not an American citizen, you will need to bring proof of your PERMANENT alien status issued to you by Immigration in addition to those items listed above.
Declaration of Domicile forms are available in the Clerk's office and in a fillable pdf format here.
Fees are established by legislative action and are subject to change. Refer to a current "Schedule of Service Charges" available in any Clerk's office location, or online, for applicable fees.
