Instructions for Florida Supreme Court Approved Family Law Form 12.995(c), Relocation/Long Distance Parenting
Plan (09/10)
INSTRUCTIONS FOR FLORIDA SUPREME COURT APPROVED FAMILY LAW
FORM 12.995(c), RELOCATION/LONG DISTANCE PARENTING PLAN
(09/10)
When should this form be used?
A Parenting Plan is required in all cases involving time-sharing with minor child(ren), even when time-
sharing is not in dispute. The Parenting Plan must be developed and agreed to by the parents and every
other person entitled to access or time-sharing with the child(ren) and approved by the court. “Other
Person” means an individual who is not the parent, but with whom the child resides pursuant to court
order, or who has the right of access to, time-sharing with or visitation with the child(ren). If the parties
cannot agree to a Parenting Plan or if the parents agreed to a Plan that is not approved by the court, a
Parenting Plan will be established by the court with or without the use of Parenting Plan
Recommendations.
This form or a similar form should be used in the development of a Parenting Plan when you are
planning to relocate your or the child(ren)’s principal residence more than 50 miles from the principal
place of residence:
at the time of the last order either establishing or modifying time-sharing, or
at the time of filing the pending action to either establish or modify time-sharing
This form should be typed or printed in black ink. If an agreement has been reached, both parties must
sign the Parenting Plan and have their signatures witnessed by a notary public or deputy clerk. After
completing this form, you should file the original with the clerk of the circuit court in the county where
the petition was filed and keep a copy for your records. You should then refer to the instructions for
your petition, answer, or answer and counterpetition concerning the procedures for setting a hearing or
trial (final hearing). If an agreed Parenting Plan is not filed by the parties, the Court shall establish a
Plan.
Where can I look for more information?
Before proceeding, you should read “General Information for Self-Represented Litigants” found at the
beginning of these forms. The words that are in bold underline in these instructions are defined
there. For further information, see chapter 61, Florida Statutes, and the instructions for the petition
and/or answer that were filed in this case.
Special notes...
At a minimum, the Relocation/Long Distance Parenting Plan must describe in adequate detail:
How the parties will share and be responsible for the daily tasks associated with the upbringing of
the child(ren),
The time-sharing schedule that specifies the time that the minor child(ren) will spend with each
parent and every other person entitled to access or time-sharing,
