In Florida, if a parent moves 50 miles or more from the residence they occupied when the last time-sharing schedule was filed with the court, this is considered a relocation. If you have a minor child and are considering relocating after a divorce, there are a few things you need to know.
First and foremost, your parenting time agreement may require modification due to the move. If you move first, without filing the appropriate paperwork with the court and, if necessary, having a hearing on the issue, you could be subject to contempt proceedings. Additionally, a move without court approval could result in a proceeding to compel the return of your child.
