Child relocation is a high stakes issue, and often one without compromise, where the outcome can have long lasting, if not permanent implications for parents and children. It is therefore key to make sure you are fully prepared when making or challenging an application.

This is an area of law that is becoming more common as the number of multi-national families continues to grow. It is not uncommon for families to be split across different parts of the country, or even the world. So applications to move to be closer to one side of the family, or even a new partner become more frequent. This book will provide clear and detailed legal and procedural guidance on applications to relocate with a child, both within and outside of the Jurisdiction. This will include:

  • What to consider before making an application
  • Who needs to be informed of, and involved in the application
  • What to steps to expect during the court process
  • The key legislation and cases
  • Recent case decisions

This book will not take one side, and will provide guidance on the relevant law around this area, so will be of assistance to those making an application to relocate and to those opposing any applications.
