You can suffer severe consequences if you take your children out of Florida to another state, without the written consent of the other parent.
If you take your children out of the country without the written consent of the other parent during the divorce proceedings, you may be charged with kidnapping, even if the children are your own.
Under the Hague Convention, the destination country must return the children to the country of residence immediately. In addition to this, the Court may compel payment of the legal fees incurred by the kidnapping parent.
