South Florida Relocation Attorney
Relocating with Children? Contact Our South Florida Family Lawyers at (954) 719-5557
After couples part, it is common for a parent to relocate with their children, whether for a new job or as a result of remarriage. If you are relocating more than 50 miles from your residence for longer than 60 days, you will need to go through the proper court procedures before your child can relocate with you. Pazos Law Group has experience guiding parents through the process of relocation and modifying current custody plans.
Legal Requirements If Moving Away with Your Child
Requests for relocation must be done through the court. If both parents agree to the move, the court will most likely approve the proposal.
- As the relocating parent, you must notify the other parent of the move. Both parents have shared parental responsibility and are obligated to continue to make joint decisions regarding their children, even through long distances.
- The court also requires the relocating parent to submit a revised parenting plan to include details about the new visitation and time-sharing schedule.
It is never advisable to simply relocate, as you can be found in violation of your existing time-sharing plan. Always talk to an attorney first if you need assistance with your relocation petition. Pazos Law Group can help you prepare the petition and craft a sound, practical time-sharing plan that works for both parties. It takes creativity and skill to create parenting plans that involve long-distance parents. We have experience working with parents who are moving across cities or even out of state.
