Just a generic question about this scenario. My current fiance was married but resided in a different state than his wife and they were separated when he filed for and obtained his Florida homestead exemption as the sole resident of the homestead covered home and the wife at no time lived in the Florida home in question, and her name is not on the mortgage deed, it is in just his name. Because he was still legally married at the time of the granting of the excemption, the wifes name was automatically put on the homestead exemption request form. They have since divorced and she has no rights to the homestead home according to the stipulations of the divorce. She signed off all rights to the house, all his posessions, etc. It was an uncontested no fault divorce. Does he have to file an amended homestead exemption form to get her name off the homestead exemption form?

No. He should not have to file a new exemption application...however, he should notify the County property Appraiser that he is divorced and she should not be a named party to the exemption so as to not have any issues in the future.
