Every parent's worst nightmare is being cut out of their children's lives. That may seem a dramatic take, but it is the grim reality for many families across the country.

If My Ex-Spouse Has Custody Of Our Child, Can They Move Overseas?

A family sitting on the floor in a cozy living room, enjoying each other's company.

There are a few details to understand when considering child custody agreements. There are different forms of custody in Florida.

First, if you and your ex-spouse have joint custody, neither of you can just up and move without the other's knowledge.

Furthermore, physical custody is separate from legal custody and refers to where the child(ren) spends most of their time. Whomever the child spends more nights with is considered the custodial parent.

Florida typically pursues some form of joint legal custody. Clients of Harbor Beach, FL, can rest assured that the Florida courts want what is in the children's best interest.

Any time a parent seeks a custody agreement change, the parties must go back to court. Having an experienced attorney to argue your case is very important, especially for a parent wanting to move their children overseas, presumably away from the other parent.

As a parent, you have rights, even if you don't have full legal or physical custody. Arcaro Law Group is experienced in these cases and can consult you in any changes you seek going forward.

Does Paying Child Support Give Me The Upper Hand In Custody Agreement Changes?

A parent's obligation to pay child support is an obligation of the child(ren), not the other parent. All custodial agreements in Florida consider each parent's financial situation, with the main focus being what is best for the children.

Any parent paying child support is fulfilling the financial obligation to care for and support that child. This does not mean that a parent can change custody agreements simply because they are paying money—that the child would need, regardless of the parent's marital status.

Remember, child custody agreements are legally binding contracts. Parents who violate them face very harsh consequences and heavy fines.

Often, this is overlooked as some parents are required to pay child support, believing this gives them some advantage over the other parent.

While it is always challenging to negotiate custody cases, it is not impossible to remedy the situation with agreement terms that satisfy both parents and benefit the child(ren).
