What Are The Laws For Child Relocation?

Florida's statute regarding child relocation are very complicated and burdensome to bring before the court without legal counsel. You may need to speak with an attorney at Reed Law right away if:

  • An order was previously entered that established time-sharing for your child, and either parent is contemplating moving more than 50 miles away from their residence at the time the last custody/time-sharing order was entered.
  • There is a pending custody action regarding your child and either parents' relocation is an issue.

Relocation For Military Families

The relocation statute often affects many parents in our area, as many military members have little to no control over when and where they will be ordered to move next.

Many military members do not realize that although they are in the military, they must still comply with Florida's relocation statute before they move their child. Also, there may be a delay before the court can hear your case, so it is imperative to file the petition for relocation as soon as you know relocation is imminent.
