Family Law Attorneys
In the state of Florida, a statute was changed in 2007 that put stricter guidelines in place for parental and child relocation. If you are a parent who is trying to move away with your child, or you are trying to prevent your ex-spouse from relocating with your child, it is important to speak with an attorney as soon as possible.
Your attorney should know the law regarding relocation in Florida and how to protect the best interests of you and your children. At the law firm of Kallins Little Delgado, our attorneys provide knowledgeable advise and skilled representation for parents who are dealing with relocation issues in Florida. Parental relocation disputes are complex and protecting your children is too important to trust with an inexperienced law firm.
Parental Relocation Lawyers
Before a parent who is seeking to relocate out of state with his or her child is allowed to move, many factors will be taken into account, including the approval or disapproval of the other parent. Other factors include:
- Relationship between the child and the non-moving parent
- Age of the child
- Financial situation of the parents
- Amount of time the non-moving parent has with the child
- Ability to modify the parenting plan
In every case, the parent who wishes to move must prove that it is in the best interests of the children. When the proposed relocation is contested, the parent who wishes to relocate must serve a notice of intent and then the court will schedule a contested hearing. Time lines must be followed carefully and the statute needs to be followed to avoid potential complications.
