When parents seek a divorce, agreements will need to be drafted concerning custody and visitation (timesharing). These agreements can be put together with the help of a Tampa divorce lawyer, or worked out in court. Once a settlement has been reached in a divorce case, the terms of the settlement can only be changed by petition and modification of the existing court order. This includes a custodial parent deciding to relocate more than 50 miles from their current residence.
Taracks & Associates is a caring and skilled family law firm that can provide detailed information on relocation laws and how to request approval from the court to move. We have assisted many divorced parents with the relocation process, and can give you important legal guidance regarding your relocation plans.
A parent that is planning to relocate must notify the court of their intentions to move. The court will need various information regarding the move, including why the relocation is taking place, where the parent is moving to, when the relocation will take place, a description of the neighborhood, and the phone number of the new residence. If needed, the relocating parent may also need to work out new agreements regarding custody and visitation.
Our firm can review your relocation plans and help address the legal aspects of your move. If you are the recipient of a relocation notice and disagree with the move, attorneys at our firm can provide effective representation at the relocation hearing.
