Relocation Concerns Following a Divorce

Relocation Concerns Following a Divorce

Divorce is a highly complex subject that requires the expert assistance of a divorce attorney. One of the many challenges that a divorce attorney in Tampa can help you with is settling issues with regard to relocation. Relocation challenges can arise when children are involved. Sometimes, the noncustodial parent will simply agree to the relocation of the custodial parent. More often than not, however, the courts become involved.

Your divorce attorney can advise you as to the laws in your specific state regarding relocation with children following a divorce. For example, in Florida, the parent with primary custody does not need to obtain permission from the noncustodial parent if the move involves less than 50 miles. If the other parent does object to a move involving more than 50 miles, the family law attorney will raise a number of issues for the court's consideration. The court will decide whether the move is in the child's best interests, whether a new visitation agreement is likely to be adhered to, whether the noncustodial parent has used the existing visitation rights, and whether the new visitation agreement will promote a meaningful relationship between the child and the noncustodial parent.
