Domestication of Decree

Divorced mother and father of minor now reside (separately but locally) in Florida for last 2 years. ''Joint legal care, custody and control with mother having residential custody subject to reasonable visitation as outlined...'' Divorce decree from Kansas 12 years ago. Custody / visitation / movement (but not back to Kansas) issues now brewing. No legal activity in Florida or Kansas since divorce decree. Question: Is it necessary and/or wise to ''Domesticate'' the decreee in the FL court system? Can it be filed without the other's knowledge. Can it be done without lawyers ie; a ''simple'' filing, if there is such a thing? Thank you.
