    FL resident/non-resident help

    Does a Florida resident permit supersede the need for a nonres permit?

    Situation: I have a fl res permit but am not living there currently. I DO maintain a home there and it is my "permanent address" - otherwise no other US address. Am I allowed to carry legally or do I need to wait 6 months to become a resident?

    Practically I would have no problems carrying there but would like to know it's legality.

    Florida only issues one license resident or non resident though you do need to keep your address current.

    I see no reason for a problem.
    Your only home is there...
    Do you bank there?
    Do you vote there?
    Do you get mail there...and have it forwarded?

    yoru problem is more likelyto be with the other state yu are living in. If you are a resident of Florida, you need to show that you live there, pay taxes, vote, have a FL will, etc. etc. If you are in, say NJ, for more than 6 months of the year, have a NJ driver's license, earn money and pa taxes there, vote there, etc. you are a NJ resident and might want a FL non-resident permit (which won't help you in NJ). The important thing to do is establish what your state of residence is.

    There is no FL non-resident license. There is only a CWFL. The only difference to FL is the address. Now, some states may not honor a FL CWFL unless you are a resident of FL.

    Yes x4. Really, the only difference is that technically, I'm not a resident. I guess what everyone seems to be saying is that I'm fine legally, which is what I guessed/hoped.

    Correct, you're fine legally. What you're talking about is residency for income tax purposes.

    You've got an address in FL so your CWFL allows you to carry while in FL and all the other states that honor the FL resident license.
