Relocation & Removal From Jurisdiction Proceedings

Relocation & Removal From Jurisdiction Proceedings

When parents decide to separate or divorce, more often than not they continue to live and work in the same geographical area. However, there are certain circumstances where one parent may need to consider relocating overseas due to a remarriage or change of employment.

There may also be an international-based issue whereby one party may wish to return back to another jurisdiction in order to secure family support and financial assistance.

In these circumstances questions will arise such as:

  • what should happen to the child?
  • where should the child reside?
  • how much time shall each parent spend with the child?
  • how can these arrangements be best facilitated?
