International relocation

International relocation issues are one of the hardest issues facing the Family Court system. The decisions in these cases have major ramifications for parties involved, and the perception is that they can be all or nothing cases. We work to ensure your case is presented in the best possible light, with all the relevant evidence gathered together to support your position – whether that is for a relocation to occur or not to occur. We also work with you and with the people involved in making the decision to find solutions that may not have occurred and to identify what is truly motivation the relocation or resistance to relocation.

We also know about the experts – for example, the reporters who interview you and your children to assist a Court in making these decisions – and provide you with guidance on how to present and discuss issues at these meetings to maximise your prospects.

If you are considering a relocation, or are opposing a proposed relocation, contact us now to get your position correct early, as this can be the make or break in these cases.
