Florida law prevents a residential parent from relocating their residence more than 50 miles unless both parents enter into a written agreement before the move or a court approves the relocation.  Relocating the child without complying with Florida’s statutory requirements could subject the parent in violation to contempt and other proceedings to compel the return of the child and may be taken into account by the court in any subsequent action in which a parenting plan is at issue.  We provide legal representation to any parent prosecuting, or defending against, a minor child's relocation.
