Can I move out of state with a joint custody agreement? How hard would it be to do so?

Asked over 3 years ago - Tampa, FL

How does joint custody work in Hillsborough county if you want to move out of state someday in the child's life when they are a minor? Do you have to work that into your custody agreement with the biological father? Would it be hard to move out of state if I met someone and wanted to someday with joint custody?
