Parental Relocation

Ft. Myers Family Attorney: Parental Relocation and Custody Modification, Florida

Relocating your children out of Florida after a divorce? Call a skilled attorney

A Florida parent who is divorced or has a parenting plan with the children’s other parent cannot move more than 50 miles away or out of the state without adhering to appropriate legal procedures. If you have a reason to move your child more than 50 miles away from a present location, you must file the appropriate notification in Florida court. On the other hand, if you are a parent who wants to challenge your children’s other parent from moving away, you have that right. In either case, you will need a strong legal advocate who understands the complexity of Florida family law. Call Ft. Myers Family Law Attorney Theresa Daniels for the assistance you need in a Florida parental relocation dispute: (239) 214-6010.

If you want to keep your children from being moved away, Florida Lawyer Theresa Daniels

She will be on your side if you want to stop your children from being moved out of Lee County or even out of the state or country. Florida law requires very particular steps when divorced parents make any modifications to their parenting plans. Since having children living far away will influence visitation and other details of your custody agreement, you need an attorney to help you through the legal process. Contact Family Law Attorney Theresa Daniels in Fort Myers.

Whether you want to move your children or protest that move, the Florida court will need to know several details of your circumstance:

  • How far away is the move? If you leave the state of Florida or more than 50 miles from your current location, you must negotiate with the other parent regardless of where they live.
  • What percentage of time do you have child custody? Who has the child or children the majority of the time can help the court determine relocation permission.
  • What is in the best interest of the children? The court may be persuaded that the opportunities away from Florida make moving a reasonable request. On the other hand, the court may be persuaded that the relocation is not in the best interest of the children.

Whatever side of the dispute you are on, Theresa Daniels can make an argument to maximize your opportunities for success in a Florida family court.
