Advocating for Florida parents facing out-of-state moves

Once two Florida parents make the decision to divorce, their lives may take drastically different directions. A custodial parent may have a job or other opportunity that would require them to move to another state, leading them to consider moving away and taking their children. Florida residents have been leaving the state at higher rates than in previous years, often separating children of divorce from their non-custodial parents.

You may suspect your ex-spouse is using an out-of-state move to make it more difficult for you to see your children. You may be a custodial parent considering an important career step or experiencing health issues that require you to leave the state. If you and your ex-spouse cannot come to an agreement about an out-of-state move, you may need to take the issue to court.

We advocate for parents wishing to prevent their ex-spouses from taking their children out of Florida and may be able to help a client build a strong case for modifying a child custody order or shared parenting plan to allow them to take their children to a state with greater economic, educational or other opportunities. We are also experienced in working with out-of-state parents whose children live in Florida. These parents may need advice on their rights under Florida child custody laws, or they may need help ensuring their ex-spouses comply with their visitation orders or shared parenting plans.

Parents wishing to fight an out-of-state move or who are considering moving to another state may have difficulty facing the courts alone. Please see our page on change of custody for more information.
