Sending a child out of state (or more than 50 miles away) for purposes of attending a boarding or private school is not a “relocation” for purposes of Section 61.13001 (Florida Statutes, 2013). This means there is no requirement to file a Notice of Intent to Relocation or comply with the other provisions of the statute. See Blackely v. Blakely, 4D12-3079 (Fla. 4th DCA October 16, 2013); Young v. Hector, 833 So. 2d 793 (Fla. 3rd DCA 2002).
