Can I leave Florida with my child?

By Florida Law Advisers, P.A. |

Generally, if there has been a prior custody case filed in court, you will need either the other parent’s permission or court approval before moving more than 50 miles away. The requirement is based on Florida Statute 61.13001.

How do you win a custody relocation case?

By Florida Law Advisers, P.A. |

The relocation must be in the best interest of the child. Therefore, a relocation case should focus on the improvements the relocation will have on the child’s life. Normally, the relocation request should also provide for time-sharing with the other parent.

Can the father prevent my relocation?

By Florida Law Advisers, P.A. |

Yes, under Florida Statute 61.13001, approval from the other parent or the court may be required before relocating with a child. If a parent objects to the relocation, the judge will decide the case based on the best interests of the child.

By Florida Law Advisers, P.A. |
