Relocating the residence of your child can be difficult where your former partner is opposed to it.
Our Specialist Family Lawyers can assist you to make a case for the relocation of your children and resist your former spouse forcing you to return.
How We Help
If your ex goes to Court, unless you can establish a strong basis for your move, the Court will generally make an Order for you to return with your child. Our Parenting and Relocation Lawyers will guide you before, during or after your move to give you the best opportunity to make your move permanent.
Where your ex opposes your relocation with the children, they will usually make an urgent Court Application for you and the children to immediately return to the usual place of residence.
Our expert Family Lawyers have helped many people to successfully relocate with their children after separation. We can assist you to understand the do’s and dont’s of your situation and assist you to have a very strong argument that persuades the Court that you don’t have to return immediately and, if your ex continues to argue their case, that you should not have to return permanently.
We strongly recommend that you obtain our advice at a Smart Start Appointment about your proposed location before discussing it with your ex.
