A new job opportunity, a change in your family may require you or the other party to move. The custodial parent must get the permission of the Court to move with the child more than 50 miles. Our office represents parents wishing to move and parents who wish to fight a custodial parent wishing to move.
The Court is required to follow the factors set out by the Legislature in Florida Statute 61.13001. Each factor and the weight the Court will give each depends on the facts and circumstances. Some of the factors include:
Temporary Relocation Orders:
A Petition for Relocation hearing can take up to 90 days to be scheduled, but a temporary order may be possible within 30 days. Whether you are requesting a relocation or defending against a relocation request, our office can help you work for or defend against a relocation.
Contact our office for a free, no obligation consultation if you are facing life circumstances which require you to relocate with your child or if the custodial parent is requesting a relocation.

If you have received a Legal Notice of Intent to Relocate, you need to contact an attorney immediately as you have a very limited time to respond and oppose the relocation.
