Short Distance Child Relocation

Each person’s situation is different. A short distance relocation such as moving house to the same or nearby suburb may or may not have an impact on your child.

You may consider parenting orders which might apply to you.

In determining the effects of relocating, you might also consider the impact it could have on the other parent’s ability to spend time with the child.

Another consideration could be the impact it will have on the child attending school and their extracurricular activities.

Child relocation matters can be complex and consequences for breaching a court order can be severe and may affect your ability to spend time with your child.

We therefore recommend you seek early legal advice from one of our very experienced Perth family lawyers. We invite you to discuss your particular matter with our Legal Practitioner Director, Ms. Shannon Bodeker, who has been working in family law for over 20 years and has High Court experience in child relocation.

Prior to your first appointment, you may send us an email, fax or similar, outlining your situation in as much detail as you like. This information will be read on a complimentary basis prior to your first family law appointment. We get to know you and your family law matter before we meet.

Please note this is not family law advice. It is important to seek advice specific to your circumstances. We are very experienced Perth family law solicitors and can provide you with the very best legal advice regarding children’s matters.
