Marital and family decisions regarding minor children are often the most difficult to deal with. Relocation is just one of the many difficult issues. Florida Statute 61.13001 establishes the relocation factors a court considers when deciding if a child(ren) stay or go. Generally, if one parent desires to relocate or move with his or her minor child to a new residence 50 miles or more from the current residence, the relocating parent must either enter into a written agreement with the other parent, or obtain the court’s permission. The courts will review the specific Florida statute governing relocation. In the event the non-relocating parent fails to consent, a petition seeking relief must be filed. Understanding your rights and responsibilities before making these decisions is vital to protecting your rights. Often these cases must be litigated and Flaherty Law Firm provides personal, focused and experienced assistance to every client with these difficult decisions.
