Relocation of Children
Florida Attorney Handling Children Relocation
Once a divorce has become final, your divorce decree stipulates which parent is the custodial parent as well as a visitation schedule/parenting agreement in place to ensure your children have a stable home environment where they get to see both parents on a regular basis. However, life brings many changes to people's lives and it can occur that either you or your ex-spouse may have to move at some point in the future.
If this occurs and you are moving more than fifty miles away from your current residence, you are required by Florida statutes to obtain a court order to be able to legally do so, or a written agreement between the ex-spouses. When this becomes necessary it is best to use the services of a Florida Family Law attorney to assist you with the preparation of either the court order or a written agreement. If you are the custodial parent and decide to move without obtaining the proper agreement, you could be held in contempt of court or risk losing your custody status, depending upon the circumstances.
