When a marriage ends, there are many issues that require sorting out. They aren't always contentious but do need careful consideration and planning. One of the most critical issues for couples often relates to child custody. Parenting plans are put in place after careful evaluation of the family circumstances combined with a child's best interests. But even the best laid plans may need to be revisited as time goes on.
For most couples with children, a divorce only signals the end of the marriage, not the end of their parental responsibilities. All Florida divorces involving children will consider factors between the parents based on the children's best interests. This includes child custody arrangements, alimony and child support payments.
In the land of the free, divorced parents or others who are living under custody arrangements may not feel free to roam. The truth is, parents in Florida who share child custody arrangements can't just decide to relocate themselves and the child without agreement of the other party or court permission. In fact, under the law, you can't move more than 50 miles away from your current residence with a minor child without a written agreement or approval from a judge.
