Relocation with children

It is often difficult to strike a balance between the freedom of one parent to move and the right of the child to spend regular time with both their parents. Achieving both objectives is extremely hard and because of the nature of each of the parents’ proposals there is often little room for compromise.

Judges often find relocation cases difficult to determine as both parents may have valid reasons for their proposals. Parents wanting to relocate may do so for work or family related reasons, including moving with a new partner or returning home to access family support.

We can help you to navigate the complex issues concerning making a proposal to relocate with your children or resist the other parent relocating.
