Life changes — such as a new job or remarriage — often require one parent to travel or relocate. This big move not only affects you, but your children as well. If you have a shared parenting arrangement in Florida with an ex-partner and you want your child to move with you, you will need to receive permission from a Florida court.

If you are looking to relocation outside of 50 miles of your current home address, Florida law requires that you request such a relocation through the court system. This family law proceeding is very technical, and many things can go wrong if you do not follow the requirements perfectly.
