In January of 2009, the State of Florida adopted new relocation statutes. Any party that wishes to relocate more than fifty (50) miles from the residence as of the date of the last order, must follow the statute in order to relocate. The party must notify the other party in writing to request relocation. The notice must include the new time sharing schedule proposed by the relocating parent. If the non relocating party does not agree, then the relocating party must file a petition to relocate. A relocation action is a family law action just like a divorce, a paternity, or modification action.
