Relocation of Children:

If you or your spouse is considering relocating more than 50 miles away with the minor child, you will want to familiarize yourself with the Florida law on relocations involving a minor child. Parties who relocate without complying with the law will find themselves in a situation where they will be ordered to return the child to Florida if their spouse protests the relocation of the child. Speak with an Orlando divorce attorney and family law lawyer today for more information.

Relocation Law – Florida Statute 61.13001:

In Florida, a party must have a written agreement in accordance with Florida Statute 61.13001 in divorce cases. Otherwise a person seeking relocation in a divorce must file a petition to relocate and serve it upon the other parent, and every other person entitled to access to or time sharing with the child. The pleadings must be in accordance with this Statute.

Administrative Orders with Relocation Provisions:

In many counties there are administrative orders that take effect upon the filing of a divorce case. These orders typically have provisions restricting relocation of the minor child without the Court’s approval.

Orange & Osceola County Administrative Order Provision
This order states that neither party shall change the residence of the children from the school zone in which the children’s home is currently located without the written agreement of both parties or an order of the Court. Neither party may change a child’s assigned school zone nor change the day care arrangement without the written agreement of both parties or an order of this Court.

Brevard & Seminole County Administrative Order Provision
Neither party shall change their residence beyond a fifty(50) mile radius from their current residence, nor shall either party change a child’s customary school district or day care arrangement without the written agreement of both parties or an order of this court.
