Divorced parents who are sharing custody with their ex-partners no longer have to worry about relocating with the kids or breaking the terms of the custody agreement. The Law Offices of Cindy D. Sackrin assists parents with child relocation cases and settlements.
When a couple goes through a divorce, the children are left to feel the sting of the estranged relationship between their parents. In most cases, the parents will receive substantial timesharing where they can stay with the kids at predetermined times. In other instances, one parent receives majority timesharing while the other one is given rights to visit and travel with the kids.
In whichever case, the decision to relocate with the children cannot be made by one parent. If a parent chooses to move with children without the consent of the other party, they can cause unnecessary disagreements and court battles.
In Florida, relocation is the act of moving a minor fifty miles or more away from their current residence for sixty days or more. Actions that amount to relocation include moving house, even when the move is warranted by compelling circumstances such as a career change, vacations, visits to grandparents, and extended holidays are not considered relocation unless they extend beyond the stipulated sixty days.
As long as the other party has not consented to the relocation, a parent is not legally allowed to make that decision. There are various reasons why consent is necessary before relocation. The other parent needs to be sure that they will still be able to visit the child even after the relocation. Additionally, there is a need to ensure that the child will access proper care at the new place.
Cases of relocation can cause unnecessary disagreement between parents. That is why it is essential to consult a legal professional before relocating with kids. Attorney Cindy D. Sackrin has been offering family law services, including relocation settlements for over three decades now. She helps parents draft an agreement that stipulates the terms of the relocation. After writing the contract, she presents it to court for validation. In the agreement, the attorney will help parties outline the following:
- Consent to move with the children
- Revisions to the existing visitation schedule
- New visitation schedule
- Logistics surrounding visitation, for example, transport for the kids
Once the court proves that the agreement is in the best interests of the kids, it will validate the document without a hearing. However, in some instances, a trial may be necessary to substantiate the reasons for the move and to ensure the welfare of the children. In other cases, one party can oppose the relocation. Cindy D. Sackrin can help parents navigate this process and come to an agreement that is in the best interest of the children.
