We construct a time-dependent Ginzburg-Landau (TDGL) theory for the superfluid atomic Fermi-gases near the Feshbach resonance from the fermion-boson model on the basis of the functional integral formalism. We show that the GL coefficients in the TDGL equation are complex numbers except in the BEC limit. The complex TDGL equation describes both damping and propagating dynamics, which leads to very rich superfluid dynamics near the Feshbach resonance. We predict multiple plane-wave modes corresponding to the in-phase and out-of-phase like oscillations between fermionic and bosonic superfluids and a galaxylike spiral pattern for a vortex.
