Q: In 2018 my sons father had us move back to Florida ,going thru the courts Family plan says to live in a 50 mile radius
If he is trying to move 90 miles away ( distance calculated by how the crow flies) is he going against the courts ordered Document? Should I file with the courts?
A: I believe you will find that the child can't be relocated outside of the 50 mile radius without permission; it doesn't prohibit the parent from moving. Check the court order to be sure.
A: If a parent relocates without following Florida Statute Section 61.13001, then the statute itself provides guidance on what to do. Even if a parent does not move the child and only moves him- or her-self, the statue still applies. In the event the other parent does actually comply with the statue, you have the opportunity to object to the relocation in accordance with the statute and then the matter will go through litigation and the court will make a determination if the parties are unable to agree.
