If you reside in Longwood and need the assistance of a Seminole
County family law attorney or divorce lawyer... We Can Help You
Divorce, child custody, child support, and other family law cases are typically filed with the Court in the county in which the
parties reside. Longwood is, of course, located in Seminole County, Florida. Therefore, if you are married and you and your
spouse live in Longwood, your Longwood divorce, child custody, child support, alimony, visitation, relocation, modification,
juvenile dependency, or other family law case, would typically be filed with the Seminole County Court.
If you reside in Longwood and the other party resides in
another city located in Seminole County, like in the above
examples, your Longwood family law related case would
usually still be filed with the Court in Seminole County.
But if you reside in Longwood and the other party resides in
a city outside Seminole County, your Longwood divorce or
other family law related case would not necessarily have to
be filed with the Court in Seminole County, but could
nevertheless be filed with the Court in Seminole County.

Lawyer Advertising. Whether you are looking for a Longwood Divorce Lawyer, a Longwood Family Law Attorney, or
a Longwood Child Custody Lawyer, the hiring of a lawyer is an important decision that should not be based solely upon

Likewise, if you are the unmarried parent of a child and you and the
other parent reside in Longwood, your Longwood child custody,
modification, visitation, relocation, paternity, child support, juvenile
dependency, or other family law related case, would usually be filed
with the Court in Seminole County.
But remember, it is the county of residence not the city of residence,
as noted above, which determines where a divorce or other family
law related case should be filed. And of course, for purposes of
determining where a family law case should be filed, the marital
status of the parties is not a relevant factor.

Longwood was named by one of its early settlers, Edward Warren Henck, who arrived in Florida by steamboat in
the 1870's. Henck named Longwood after a suburb in Boston which he had previously helped plat. Interestingly,
the Boston suburb of Longwood was named after the district on the island of Saint Helena where Napoleon
Bonaparte was exiled from 1815 to his death in 1821.
Henck was instrumental in Longwood's development. He was the first postmaster of the Longwood Post Office
which was established in 1876. Henck also led the charge in the construction of the railroad that connected
Sanford to Orlando and which first ran in 1880.
Henck was elected as Longwood's first mayor in 1885. His 38 room Longwood Hotel, which was constructed by
Joseph Clouser, was completed in 1886. The Longwood Hotel, also known as the Longwood Village Inn, was
added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.
Longwood was incorporated as a city in 1923 and today, Longwood has a population of over thirteen thousand.
