Child Relocation

child relocation perth

Child Relocation (that is where one parent wants to change the location of where the children of a relationship or marriage are to live) is often considered one of the most technical and complex areas of family law. Bodekers Family Lawyers & Mediators can assist you in agreeing custody/care arrangements for a relocation or can guide you through the court process if necessary.

Sometimes when a marriage or relationship breaks down one of the parents wants to move or relocate overseas, interstate or even within the state to be with family or sometimes with a new partner.

That parent may want to take the child or the children of the marriage with them, naturally, they will need to obtain the consent of the other parent and/or the permission of the court.

Of course, it is better if parents can agree to custody/parenting arrangements that are in the best interests of their child or children.

Parents can therefore attend mediation style conferencing, mediation or other forms of alternative dispute resolution that we can guide you through with a view to agreeing on arrangements for your child or children that will enable children to spend significant time with both parents, grandparents and family members even if a parent does relocate.

However, this is not always the case in relocation matters, particularly international relocation cases which often proceed to litigation which our experienced family lawyers can act for you in and guide you through.

We provide our clients with a complimentary background pre-read which will save you legal fees and time. You can tell us all about your case before you come in for your first family law appointment.
