When should this form be used?
This form should be used when the parents and every other person entitled to access to, visitation, or
time-sharing with the minor child(ren) are in agreement and are asking the court to permit the
relocation of the child(ren). “Other Person” means an individual who is not the parent, but with whom
the child resides pursuant to court order, or who has the right of access to, time-sharing with, or
visitation with the child(ren). You may file a Motion for Order Permitting Relocation with Agreement if
the following are true:
One of the parents or a person entitled to access to or time-sharing with the children wishes to
relocate the child(ren) to a residence more than 50 miles from the child(ren)’s principal place of
residence at the time of the last order establishing or modifying time-sharing or at time of filing of
the pending action.
There is an existing cause of action, judgment, or decree of record pertaining to the child(ren)’s
residence or time sharing schedule.
The parents and every other person entitled to access to or time-sharing with the children have
signed a written agreement, Agreement for Relocation with Minor Child(ren), Florida Supreme
Court Approved Family Law Form, 12.950(a), or similar form which:
1. Reflects the consent to the relocation;
2. Defines an access or time-sharing schedule for the non-relocating parent and any other persons
who are entitled to access or time-sharing; and
3. Describes, if necessary, any transportation arrangements related to access or time-sharing.
Your order regarding custody, primary residence, the parenting plan, time-sharing, or access to or
with the child(ren) was entered before October 1, 2009 and the order does not expressly govern the
relocation of the child(ren); was entered on or after October 1, 2009; or your case was pending on
October 1, 2009.
This form should be typed or printed in black ink. You must fill in all sections of the form. If you are an
“other person” entitled to access, visitation, or time-sharing with the child(ren), substitute your name
for Petitioner or Respondent in the form. After completing the form, you should sign the form before a
notary public or deputy clerk. You should file the form in the county where the original order or
judgment was entered. If the order or judgment was entered in another state, or if the child(ren) live(s)
in another state, you should speak with an attorney about where to file this form.
