STUART RELOCATION ATTORNEY
Can I relocate with my children?
Florida’s time sharing laws put great emphasis on giving children ample opportunity to spend time with both parents on a regular basis. In light of this commitment, the state has laws that protect the children from being separated from one of their parents. A child cannot be relocated more than 50 miles from the residence established in the parenting plan. If either parent needs to move for a job opportunity, financial reasons, or for any other situation, they must obtain legal permission if their new home exceeds the 50-mile limit.

Each parent has legal rights to time sharing with their children, which is why the law requires that the moving parent have a court order or written agreement from the other parent that allows the long-distance move. Any modifications of prior orders must be carried out according to the law’s guidelines, and a Stuart attorney can help parents request permission to relocate.
The court will consider the reasons for your request and the best interests of the children before determining approval. If the court approves the request you will be able to move and a new parenting plan will be established which will set forth how you and the other parent intend to co-parent your children in light of the distance between you.
