Florida Child Relocation
Whether it is because of a new job, or to be closer to friends and family, many people need to relocate from time to time. However, if after your Florida divorce you are the primary custodial parent, you cannot just pick up and leave. Rather, you will need to get the Florida Family Law court’s permission to leave. Unless both parents can come to an agreement on the relocation and the time-sharing arrangement, the parent with primary residence of the child must file the proper proceeding in court to initiate the action.
When determining whether or not to agree to the relocation the Court will look at a multitude of factors. These include the nature and duration of the child’s relationship with the parent proposing the relocation, the age and developmental stage of the child, the ability to preserve the relationship between non-relocating child and the parent, as well as the current employment and economic circumstances of the parents and the career opportunities available to the moving parent.
