Relocation is a reality for many Central Florida families and families across the nation. With businesses taking on a more global approach, employees may be asked to move in order to keep their current jobs or to advance within their companies. As well, extended families are also spread out through the country. There are often times when being closer to extended family provides a benefit to the children. As difficult as relocation can be for a family, it can become even more complicated within the scope of a divorce or paternity action.

If you are a parent attempting to relocate or a parent fighting the relocation of your child, it is of the utmost importance to be in timely compliance with the statute.
