Florida Attorney for Parent and Child Relocation After Divorce

Attorney Representation in Tampa, FL for over 35 years

At Raymond R. Pines, P.A., we represent parents who are seeking to gain permission to relocate as well as those parents challenging a possible relocation. The overriding question in all relocation issues: Is the relocation in the best interest of the child? Often, the terms and details outlined in the original final judgment of divorce are going to resolve this question. However, in situations where the final order does not address relocation, the courts will have the responsibility of deciding the issue, and our attorneys will advocate for your position.

Parent and child relocation is separate from the normal parenting plans and time sharing arrangements. There are rules governing a move beyond a 50-mile limit. Failure to notify the other parent before relocating can result in severe consequences for the offending parent.

Relocation cases are fact sensitive and each case must be analyzed on its own particular facts. The judge will consider a number of factors, including:

We are experienced trial lawyers who represent clients in relocation trials, and we are prepared to professionally advocate for your position in court.
