Located on Florida’s Interbay Peninsula is a region which is known as South Tampa. It encompasses a number of neighborhoods of Tampa, Florida including Davis Islands, Beach Park and Hyde Park. Hyde park is arguably the most notable of the neighborhoods, being home to the entertainment district known as SoHo (South Howard Avenue Tampa) and boasting a variety of fine dining and night-life opportunities.
The residents who live in South Tampa make up a large percentage of Tampa’s total population of nearly 350,000 as of 2011. Unfortunately, they also make up for a portion of the Tampa Bay Area’s vacancy rate. As of 2010, there were 157,130 households in the Tampa Bay area. 13.5% of those homes were sitting vacant.
Vacancy and Parental Relocation: What Now?
After the economic crisis which struck the country in 2008, a lot of homeowners chose to up and leave their homes which had decreased so much in value that they would not be able to recoup their investment by continuing payments. This forced many individuals, including parents of children, to relocate as soon as possible with many completely abandoning their properties and leaving them for the lenders to deal with.
One of the realities of this problem was that many parents, some of whom had primary custody and some of whom did not, chose to uproot and leave with their children in tow while the other parent had no idea of their intentions.
Parents Can Leave But Their Children Cannot
Through our years of providing counsel, we have made it clear that parents have the right to relocate to whereever they choose. Their children, however, are an entirely separate manner.
Depending on your personal circumstances, children may or may not be able to move with you because this can have a significant impact on time-sharing and custody. It can also have an impact on who stays with whom, and when, as well as transportation costs, and who will be responsible for them.
Our attorneys at the Anton Legal Group are fully versed and familiar with defending and protecting parents on both sides of this argument. Whether you are hoping to relocate more than 50 miles away and take your child with you or are attempting to block a relocation situation, we are familiar with both sides of the issue and will work with you to build the most concrete case possible.
