No that is not permitted, especially if there is a court order in place. You should file a petition to have the child returned to you asap.

No, it is not legal for a parent to do that. If they want to permanently relocate the children more than 50 miles from their current residence, they need to comply with Florida's Parental Relocation Statute, Chapter 61.13001.

You need to consult with a family law attorney in your area as soon as possible to discuss your options.
