Relocation Attorneys in Gainesville

Fighting for Your & Your Child’s Best Interests

Divorce is already disruptive in the lives of children. The prospect of moving away from one parent often continues the disruption. Few issues following a divorce are as legally complex and emotionally charged as relocation. The courts understand the impact of relocation, making the approval of these requests both challenging and rare.

Experienced legal representation is needed to protect parental rights and ensure the best interests of the children. Whether you are pursuing or disputing a relocation, the attorneys at Dunham & Ingram will provide the diligent and compassionate legal advocacy you need.

Personalized Representation for Your Family Law Needs

Specific procedural rules must be followed in Florida when a custodial parent requests to relocate a child or children more than 50 miles away. First and foremost, any relocation must be in the best interests of the children.

Relocations can be pursued successfully with the cooperation and consent of the noncustodial parent. The agreement must be in writing, define visitation rights, and document transportation arrangements. Once agreed upon by both parties, the contract must be ratified by the court.

For disputed requests, a petition to relocate must be filed with the court. Detailed information must be provided as to the specific reasons for the relocation, the date of the move, and the intended new residence. If an agreement still cannot be reached, a hearing is scheduled to consider facts and circumstances regarding the parent-child relationship and the feasibility of maintaining that relationship.
