When a Florida couple with children gets a divorce, the couple either comes to an agreement or the court enters an order outlining custody and visitation with the children. However, a child custody order can never account for all of the changes that can take place in the family. There could come a time when the existing order or agreement needs to be modified.
One of the main reasons why parents seek a modification to child custody is because one of them wants to relocate with the children. If the both parents come to an agreement regarding the relocation and create a new visitation schedule, it should not be difficult to obtain the court's approval. However, if the parent who does not have primary physical custody of the children does not agree to the relocation, it will be necessary to take the matter to court.
