When parents are not divorced yet, can one parent move with the children out of Florida?
If a petition has been filed, then you cannot move out of Florida. As a matter of fact, you cannot even move more than 50 miles from your current residence without asking the judge or a court to allow you to relocate over the 50 mile radius mileage. What you can do is try to settle with your spouse and ask them, or agree with him or her that is in the best interest of the children that you move to a place, let’s say, you have family members to help you out. Or, let’s say, you have a career job that will give you more financial stability.
Once you and your spouse agree on the move, then you can move. If you and your spouse can’t agree, then you have to go to court and show the judge why the relocation is in the best interest of the children. If you are able to do that, the judge might let you relocate with the children.
