Relocation of Children
Florida law prohibits relocation of children by either parent more than 50 miles
from the address on file with the Court at the time of the Final Judgment. Section 61.13001 Florida Statutes. However, the Courts have recently held that even when the move is less than 50 miles, if there will be a change in the schools the children attend the parties must agree or the Court will determine what is in the best interests of the children in terms of their residence and the school they attend. Dickson vs. Dickson, 169 So3d 287 (FLA 5th DCA 2015).
