Protecting the Rights of Parent and Child

Moving Once your divorce decree has been finalized, you may think that everything has been set in stone. In reality, most elements of a divorce agreement can be modified. This includes the ever important issue of child custody. Modifications are often necessary to reflect the ever-changing lives of the parties involved. This can include parents’ desire to relocate themselves and their children due to a new job opportunity or a new relationship. These types of cases can be emotional and extremely difficult for all parties involved. At the law firm of Braverman & Hymowitz, we have represented parents who wish to move, and parents who are trying to prevent their ex-spouse from moving their child away.

For more than 30 years, our law firm has served the residents of both Fort Lauderdale and Boynton Beach, Florida. We have the knowledge and skill you need to effectively protect the rights of you and your children. Contact us to discuss your situation. Boynton Beach Child Custody Relocation Attorney Under Florida law, a parent may not physically relocate a child more than 50 miles from their current place of residence without permission from the other parent. If the other parent does not give his or her consent, the relocating parent must petition the court for approval.

When the court considers whether or not a parent may relocate, it will first look at what is in the best interests of the child. It will consider what kind of impact (negative or positive) the relocation will have on the child based on factors such as the child’s relationship with both parents; how active each parent has been in the child’s upbringing; number of relatives or other support in new area; and the opportunities, such as school, the child will have after relocation. It will also assess the reasons behind the relocating parent’s desire to move.

Child relocation cases can be complex. When the relationship between you and your child is at stake, it is important to ensure that you fully understand your legal rights as they relate to your situation. With extensive experience in child relocation proceedings, our lawyers have been successful representing both sides of this complicated issue.
