A relatively new case out of Florida’s Fifth DCA,¬†Tucker v. Liebknecht,¬†provides a “straight-line” standard to determine what exactly constitutes 50 miles, which is the maximum distance a parent can move when time-sharing has been ordered between parents. If the non-moving parent will not provide written consent to a move past 50 miles, the parent wanting to make the move must file a Petition for Relocation for the Court’s consent.

If you or your child’s parent wish to relocate the child’s residence beyond the 50-mile straight line provision, please contact our office for assistance.
