Orlando Parental Relocation Attorneys

One of the most difficult issues that can arise after divorce is relocation of children.  It is hard to find a win-win solution when a parent wants to move a child out of state or more than 50 miles from the child’s principal place of residence at the time of the original divorce decree of judgment. We have represented both the parent who wants to relocate and the parent who wants to file an objection to the move.

Parental Relocation

Florida Statute Section 61.13001 governs parental relocation of children.  Parental relocation cases involve the parent wanting to move with the child(ren) more than 50 miles from the principal place of residence at the time of the last order establishing or modifying time-sharing, or at the time of filing the pending action to establish or modify time-sharing. In Florida, the parent seeking to relocate with a child(ren) may do so by obtaining a written agreement with the other parent or petitioning the Court for an order authorizing the relocation.
