Q: I have full custody of my son but his grandparents get him every other weekend I want to move to Florida
A: Your custody order or the local court rules probably require you to file a notice of intent to relocate with the court that has jurisdiction of the custody. The court then notifies the grandparents, and there can be a court hearing. The court will then review all the facts and determine any changes to the custody order, and could require that your son continue to see the grandparents, which would effectively make it impossible for you to move. Use the Find a Lawyer tab and retain a local family law attorney to advise you.
