Do I Need Permission to Relocate with Our Child?

May 19, 2016 – at 2:32 am – by Bodekers Family Lawyers

Yes. You should always attempt to get permission from the other parent before relocating with your child, especially if you are going interstate or overseas.

Ideally, once you have permission, you should get a court order to make it official. This can be done with a Form 11 Application for Consent Orders.

Child relocation matters can be very complex. We therefore recommend you seek 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 child relocation
