Written by attorney Thomas Patrick Gill Jr.

When parents are not divorced yet, can one parent move with the children out of Florida?

If there's a court order already in place prohibiting either parent from relocating with the children outside the State of Florida, a parent should not relocate with the children. However, if a case has not been filed yet and you wish to relocate, you technically can, but it's not a good idea to do so without first speaking with your attorney to address the pitfalls and the problems that arise when you move out of state with minor children.
