Helping You with Parental Relocation

If you are a custodial parent who plans to move more than 50 miles away from your former spouse after a divorce or your former spouse is planning to leave the state with your child, we can help in regards to the proposed move. At Mark Bain Law Offices, P.A., we will take the time to explain your rights, obligations and options under Florida's parental relocation laws.

Stripping Away the Emotions of Parental Relocation and Getting to the Facts

When a custodial parent proposes to move away, the prospect requires major adjustment by the parents, children, grandparents and other extended family members, and the family court must decide whether the proposed move is in the best interests of the children. While relocation disputes can be emotional and often difficult to resolve, we will address the facts of your case and consider the interests of all parties, primarily the children.

Formal Process for Parental Relocation

An informal agreement between the parents is not enough. A relocation agreement must be in writing and clearly define visitation rights and transportation arrangements. When that is completed, the court must ratify the decree. If the parties cannot agree or the non-custodial spouse does not consent to the relocation, the matter must be submitted to the court. To achieve the best result, you need the help of our firm’s founder, attorney Mark Bain.
