Requirements to Relocate

Relocation is obtained in one of two ways: either the non-moving parent gives permission for the moving parent to move with the minor child and a long distance time sharing plan is established, or the moving parent files a Petition for Relocation with the courts. If you are the parent seeking permission to relocate with the minor child it is important to follow specific guidelines in Florida Statute 61.13001 specifically. Petitions for Relocation must follow a certain form or they risk being thrown out but the judge.

In order to build a strong case to support your relocation look closely at what the courts use to determine if the move is in the child’s best interest, specifically:

  • Nature, quality,extent of involvement, and duration of the child’s relationship with the parent.
  • The age and developmental stage of the child, the needs of the child, and the likely impact the relocation will have on the minor child.
  • The feasibility of preserving the relationship between the non relocating parent or other person and the child through substitute arrangements.
  • The child’s preference, taking into consideration the age and maturity of the child.
  • Whether the relocation will enhance the general quality of life for both the parent and the child.
  • The reasons each parent or other person is seeking or opposing the relocation.
  • The current employment and economic circumstances of each.
  • That the relocation is sought in good faith and the extent to which the objecting parent has fulfilled his or her financial obligations to the parent or other person seeking relocation.
  • The career and other opportunities available to the objecting parent or other person if the relocation occurs.
