When a non-custodial parent objects to the move, the court may schedule an evidentiary hearing to decide the fact and factors on whether to give the custodial parent permission to relocate. Florida courts take parental relocation very seriously requiring special attention from a lawyer for relocation with children. Judges generally will not make a decision without testimony and evidence and usually appreciate the services of lawyers to facilitate the trial process.

When a parent is divorced or separated and has custody of the child wishes to move out of Florida, it is difficult on the child and the other parent. If the court allows the move and the parent relocates far enough away, the children may lose regular contact with the non-custodial parent. If you are the moving or nonmoving parent, you should immediately contact Legally Modern Law for relocation with children.
