International Relocation And Moving Away

On family breakdown, you or your former partner may wish to move away with your children to live in another country.  In order to move away with your children, you generally need the permission of everyone who has parental responsibility.  However, if they don’t consent you can apply to court for permission.

This is a growing area of law with more relationships involving parents of different nationalities. There are many reasons why you may wish to relocate to another country.  You may wish to return to your country of origin, you may have met a new partner in the country where you wish to relocate or you might be doing so for work reasons.

Each case is decided on its own facts, with the interests of the child being the primary consideration.  The court will take into account a wide range of factors when reaching its decision.

If you receive an application from your former partner to relocate your child, you may wish to defend the issue.  Again there are a wide range of issues which the court will review.

If you wish to move away from your current area, otherwise known as internal relocation, your former partner may or may not agree to the move. The court will apply different considerations to this situation as compared to international relocation.

Here at CSL Law we have extensive experience in acting in relocation cases whether this is in relation to moving to another country or moving away within England and Wales.  We can help with both, making the application, defending the application, guiding you through the process and offering honest advice as to the merits of your case and what the court will consider.
