I agree with my colleague Mr. Bachert, however, if there has been no court ordered timesharing previously entered by the Court and they were never married, she has sole parental responsibility and 100% timesharing. As a result, the relocation statute wouldnt apply until there was a Court ordered timesharing plan or parental responsibility ordered. However, if he filed for timesharing with the Court, there may be an Administrative Order in your county that prevents the child's address from being changed pending the Court action.

Unless you girlfriend can prove that the move will be in the best interest of the child the relocation will not be permitted. Your girlfriend needs to review Florida Statute 61.13001. The court cannot prevent her from relocation but it can certainly prevent the child from being relocated. She will definitely need the assistance of an attorney with this type of action.
