When Is Relocation Possible With My Child After A Divorce?
Relocation is the most difficult and expensive issue in family law. It is the one area of family law where one party really does win and the other loses, in the sense that one of those parties is going to be spending less time with their children. There is a specific law in Florida on relocation and there are specific rules that you need to follow in order to relocate. The court is always going to look at what is in the best interest of the child or the children. The court can prohibit the parent from taking the child with them, in which case the child would stay with the parent who is remaining local.
In determining the child’s best interests, they’re going to look at issues like how long the child has been in the geographic area. They’ll consider what the relocation will do to the quality of the relationship between the child and the non-relocating parent. If you are the parent who wants to relocate, you need to be ready to show the court what is going to happen and what you are going to do to make sure that the quality of the relationship with the parent who’s getting left behind is going to stay strong. That burden is going to be on you.
Are Things Like Parenting Time And Child Support Adjusted When A Parent Relocates With A Child?
When a relocation happens, all of the financial aspects are reviewed. The child support will be recalculated. The overnights will probably be changing. In Florida, you can include travel expenses and other things related to the long-distance timesharing and have them offset against the child support amount.
Can I Appeal A Relocation Decision Granted By The Court?
Everything in family law is appealable. Some things have a higher or lower rate of success but if a relocation is granted, you can absolutely appeal that decision.
