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.
Many Miami residents may have heard about a recent unusual turn in a Florida child custody case. The case involves a former couple now in the midst of child custody proceedings. During these proceedings, the children reportedly reside with their mother, and they are being homeschooled.
One family law commentator notes that newly divorced parents, as well as their kids, have some learning to do as the calendar marches steadily and quickly toward the advent of a new school year in Florida and nationally.
