Understanding The Law In Florida On Custody Agreements And Parental Relocation

If a parent wishes to relocate with his or her minor child to a new residence 50 miles or more away from the current residence, the relocating parent must enter into a written agreement with the other parent, or obtain the court's permission.

Whether you are the parent seeking to relocate or the parent concerned about how the other parent's new residence will affect your child, turning to a legal team for counsel and guidance on the law and how it will apply in your situation is advised.
