I have a parenting plan in Florida St. Lucie county. Part of it says that my daughter cannot leave the state of Florida without a judge permission Florida statue 61.003. I recently found out that my daughter was moved to Georgia. I contacted Georgia ’s school and they will not let me see her even though I have this parents and plan in place. The school said they contacted the mother and she said no. I have full rights to my child but Georgia is denying my rights and said I cannot even have lunch with my daughter.
The problem that you are going through has been a nagging problem in the law for what is now decades. Florida is on the cutting edge of child custody laws and thus, the concepts of Shared Parenting are not fully understood by other states. For your edification and perhaps the school authorities in Georgia, Fla. Sta. 61.13 provides as follows:
"3. Access to records and information pertaining to a minor child, including, but not limited to, medical, dental, and school records, may not be denied to either parent. Full rights under this subparagraph apply to either parent unless a court order specifically revokes these rights, including any restrictions on these rights as provided in a domestic violence injunction. A parent having rights under this subparagraph has the same rights upon request as to form, substance, and manner of access as are available to the other parent of a child, including, without limitation, the right to in-person communication with medical, dental, and education providers."
I would strongly suggest that you consult with a qualified family law attorney regarding the enforcement and possible modification of your rights, duties and obligations under both the Final Judgment and Fla. Sta. 61.13001.
