Q: My husband and I are getting a divorce. I have accepted a job out of state. I need to know, what are my rights as the custodial parent? or if we agree on join custody?
A: If there is no court order in place, you are not “the custodial parent.” Florida no longer designates a custodial or primary parent. Moreover, if your husband objects to the relocation of the child out of state, you will need to get permission from the court before leaving with the child.
