One parent is not permitted to remove a child from the United Kingdom permanently without the permission of the other, or of the court.
Taking on host duties once again, associate Tim Carpenter welcomes Divorce and Family partner Emma Hatley and senior associate Trevona Hettiarachchi to discuss what they describe as the “tricky topic” of relocation. Questions answered in this episode include: • What does international relocation mean? How can you relocate a child after divorce or separation? • What factors will the court take into account when deciding whether a child should be allowed to relocate internationally? What if the family has more than one child? • What does the law say about relocating within England and Wales? • What would happen if one parent unilaterally decides to move to a different area of the country? • How can parents who disagree on whether a child should relocate, find a solution?
