Florida Statute 61.13001 contains various requirements that a parent must comply with before relocating a child more than 50 miles from a current residence. Occasionally, a potential move is very close to the 50 mile mark. A recent case from Florida's 5th district Court of Appeals held that distance is calculated "as the crow flies" (by a straight line from point A to point B) rather than by the distance that would be driven in a car. Tucker v. Liebnecht, 5D11-681 (Fla 5th DCA May 4, 2012).
