In the State of Florida, we have a statute that deals with relocation. Frequently, we receive calls from parents that want to move out of state with their children and they don't know what they need to do, or if they even can relocate.
If you live in Florida and are part of a blended family, you may have children in your home whom you love and support, even though they may not be biologically yours. While you do not necessarily need a piece of paper that says you are, in fact, a child’s parent to cement your bond, you may find that there are some clear benefits that come with legally adopting your stepson or stepdaughter.
A Parenting Plan is required in every family court case involving children. The Parenting Plan is either an agreement entered into by the parents or ordered by the Court at the end of a hearing. Parties can have a temporary parenting plan put in place while the case is in litigation or a final parenting plan by which they are bound once it is raitified, or made into a court order. What goes into a Parenting Plan is important to know and understand.
