If you would like to relocate with your child, McNeal Legal, LLC can guide you through the specific legal steps that must be taken to notify the other parent. Florida has adopted new statutes to accommodate parents moving out of state. For example, you must petition the court to move more than 50 miles from the original location in your parenting plan. Also, the relocating parent generally takes on a higher burden to meet the parenting plan and time sharing arrangements. As experienced Gainesville family law attorneys, we will help you understand your rights.
If you are a parent that objects an upcoming move, contact us to prepare your case. The judge will consider several factors when considering relocation, including the age of the child(ren), reasons for moving, and the ability to preserve your relationship with your child(ren).
