Most people want the flexibility to move from one city to another, or even relocate to a different part of the world. Parents usually find that a relocation request proves most effective if they prepare their case with the help of an attorney knowledgeable in family law. Many noncustodial parents try to prevent relocations that would require them to travel long distances to maintain contact with their children.
Relocation laws in Florida ultimately focus on the best interests of the child. Courts compel petitioners seeking approval for relocation to demonstrate the efficacy of a move for the long-term prospects for themselves and their children. Moreover, the law obliges them to provide adequate notice to noncustodial parents to give them time to challenge relocation requests. They also need to respond to any assertions that relocation would harm the noncustodial parents’ relationship with the child or children.
