Parental Relocation Attorney in Boca Raton & Palm Beach

Anyone who has been through a divorce where children were involved knows that divorce does not sever all ties between spouses. Children continue to connect parents long after a divorce is finalized and both parents have moved on in all other areas of their lives.

One of the clearest examples of this continuing – and sometimes frustrating – connection is Florida’s parental relocation law. Under the parental relocation law, a custodial parent is legally prohibited from moving more than 50 miles away from his or her residence without obtaining formal permission from the noncustodial parent, or a court order.

Whether you are a parent trying to move away with your child, or a parent trying to prevent child removal, it is critically important to seek legal advice from a knowledgeable family law attorney as soon as possible. Parental relocation disputes are complex, and the laws frequently change. Without experienced legal representation, you run the risk of losing your parental relocation battle.
