When the parents of children are married to each other or where there is already a court order in place for time-sharing or visitation, one parent cannot relocate the children more than fifty miles from the child’s current residence without the other parent’s permission or a Court Order.
Florida child relocation laws have specific notice requirements and time limits to file an objection to a proposed relocation pursuant to the Florida Statutes.
If a parent does relocate a child in Florida without the other parent’s permission or a Court Order, the non-relocating parent can obtain an Order requiring the children to be returned.
