Marger v. De Rosa, 57 So. 3d 866 (Fla. Ct. App. 2011)

(Florida resident acquired home used as primary residence as joint tenant with right of survivorship with his mother, and at time of acquisition had minor child; state constitution provides that the "homestead shall not be subject to devise if the owner is survived by spouse or minor child"; resident died and court held that residence was not decedent's homestead with result that it passed at decedent's death to mother as surviving joint tenant; residence not homestead property at time of purchase, thus constitutional provision inapplicable).
